Suspect Remotely Wipes iPhone X Seized in Shooting Investigation
An iPhone feature available for all Apple customers has proved to be a double-edged sword, as a 24-year-old woman involved in a criminal investigation remotely wiped the data on her phone considered to be evidence in the case.
Juelle L. Grant of Willow Avenue is accused of being the driver of a vehicle used in a drive-by shooting on Van Vranken Avenue on October 23.
Grant is believed to have helped the shooter run away from the scene and get rid of the gun that was used in the crime.
As part of the investigation, the police seized an iPhone X which was believed to store evidence in the case. But according to police documents cited by The Daily Gazette, Grant remotely wiped the device, deleting all the data that may have incriminated the two suspects.
Police didn’t block remote connections
