A stolen iPhone lead police to a pair of robbery suspects, thanks to a GPS app.

On Thursday night, two men stole the device from a man in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.

The victim went home unharmed and logged onto his computer, where he began using an application with GPS to track the phone.

The man located his device and called police with the location.

Officers caught up with the suspects, who were parolees. They're now back behind bars and charged with robbery.
