Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, a resident of NY, was arrested on Friday after police recovered a backpack stuffed with smartphones he had stolen during the music festival.

On Friday, a NY man was arrested after allegedly stealing more than 100 cell phones from concert attendees in one of the more weird crimes ever committed at the music festival.

"[We were] taking pictures then we went to post the photo", Laura Hunt Little told a local NBC affiliate, NBC News reported.

The phones were retrieved thanks to tracking services offered on cell phones like Apple's "Find My iPhone". Since his arrest, some of the phones have been returned to their owners, while the rest have been placed in lost property.

Images released Sunday by the Indio Police Department of the phones seized during the arrest of Reinaldo De Jesus Henao on Friday, April 14, 2017.

Unsurprisingly, Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, 36, was caught after several concertgoers activated their "Find My Phone" app on their lost smartphones.

As these unsuspecting concert-goers were simply going about their day, enjoying the festivities they rightfully paid for, 36-year-old Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, a NY native, was seizing on the opportunity to swipe cellphones from their owners' pockets. "People carry their phones to have easy access to them, well if it's easy for you to access, it's easy for someone else to access".

"Glad to have my phone back, so glad.ugh", said Laura Hunt Little.
