Police in the South Bay recovered a San Jose man's stolen iPad thanks to the GPS feature on the device, according to the San Jose Mercury News. They also found much more.

About $7,000 worth of electronics, as well as the stolen iPad, were found at parolee Alfredo Maldonado Jr.'s home in Morgan Hill.

Cops are investigating how the other goods, which have been reported stolen, were found there.
