100 iPhones is a lot of iPhones. Laid on the ground side to side, that's 7 meters long.  


Now the real story here is how he managed to steal so many without anyone noticing. Perhaps it was the collective carelessness of youths amidst the thumping bass lines. Maybe there was enough 'herbal medication' going around to pacifiy an elephant. 

The victims presumably realised they had lost their phones when they reached their hand out, stuck out their tongues and clicked away at the air. Perhaps even more unbelievable than the fact that 100 phones were stolen, was the fact that New Yorker Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, remained within the festival grounds with the iPhones reportedly in his backpack.

He was reportedly caught because of the iPhone's 'Find My Phone' feature. Which means, most if not all the phones were still turned on and connected to mobile data, while Reinaldo was having a merry time walking around Coachella – probably eating some fancy hipster organic chicken nugget made of free-range gluten free rainbow sprinkles.

He was reportedly charged with grand theft and possession of stolen property, but managed to pay the USD10,000 bail and walked out.

We're guessing he's headed to Coachella dressed in a farmers hat, sun glasses, and beard next to steal – and turn off – another 100 iPhones.
