In the ongoing struggle between crime and crime-fighting technology, one man claimed victory this week after his iPhone was snatched in San Mateo and then tracked to the suspected thief's home in Redwood City.
   
San Mateo police said the victim's phone was taken during an auto burglary on Rhus Street on Monday.

The victim was able to track the iPhone using an application installed on the phone, and directed police detectives to a home on Clinton Street in Redwood City on Tuesday, police said.

At the home, detectives found the missing iPhone, as well as stolen property from two other auto burglaries in San Mateo and one in Burlingame.

The suspect, Jonathan Galvin, 19, of Redwood City, was arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property, police said.
