An eight year old boy has outsmarted a burglar accused of multiple break-ins recently. Landon Crabtree, a third grade student, decided to use a tracking device application that he downloaded in an effort to find his iPad and other items stolen from his home in Manchester, Tennessee. The application was activated by Crabtree on a computer in his home and it showed that the stolen iPad was sitting at a motel close to his home.

Crabtree then told his dad that the stolen iPad was a local motel so he could call the police to take care of the matter. Coffee County Sheriff’s deputies called Crabtree’s father within the hour to let them know that they arrested a suspect in the case.


“You don’t mess with our family,” said Landon. Landon would like to work as an FBI agent once he gets older. The suspect arrested in the case, John Docherty, was using the Ambassador Inn Motel to store a treasure trove of stolen goods he acquired during recent burglaries around central Tennessee.

Docherty has had the charges against him expanded as a Franklin County detective saw the man on television and figured out that he matched a sketch of a thief wanted in that county for burglaries as well.
