I lost my Apple watch a month ago. It has cell service. I put it in lost mode. Tonight, "find my iphone" located the watch.

Should I call the cops? Would they invest energy into this case?



Something similar happened to us. My GF had her old iPhone stolen and one day all her accounts were messed up. Anyways we called the police and the basically told us to stop wasting their time

Stolen. Another state



That is a horse of another color. Since it was stolen, I would report the situation to the police by mail or their web site. If it was the LVPD, I don't think they would do anything. Probably make you come in and file a report in person, just to deter you from bothering them.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

i would use it as a data stream to sell their movements and browsing history - pretty sure its what john mcaffee did to his political opponents he jut gave out the laptops that had the backdoors in them so he could spy on them.

10 years, a local detective told me over the phone that there are 27k cases/year.

I've been in my local detectives' office. I think there is maybe 10 detectives.

I would probably just make an insurance claim through your cell provider and get a new watch (probably safest for all parties).

If the watch is several states away from you, it is unlikely that you will get it back by the police. If you lived locally I know police will often accompany you to the house where it is at for you to "confront" the potential thief. But, I have never heard of a local police department that would go without you (could be wrong).

If you feel like making a trip to the city where it is and setting up something with the local police you could probably get it back (but it would probably cost more time and money than it is worth)....

I would like to think that I would go in vigilante mode and case the house. Maybe start making things of theirs disappear.
