Stolen iPad leads police to stash

8:06 am on 30 December 2012

A man who had a stolen iPad and credit cards led Sydney detectives straight to the loot, police say.

Officers investigating two break-and-enters on Thursday were able to track down the stolen tablet computer using its in-built GPS tracker.

Several credit cards had also been stolen in the break-ins, AAP reports.

Officers arrived on Friday at an apartment in the southwest Sydney suburb of Cabramatta, and searched a 23-year-old man.

They allegedly found three of the missing credit cards, along with a drivers licence and two other credit cards, in the man's left shoe.

When they searched one of the units, police say they seized a sawn-off bolt-action rifle, a sawn-off single-barrel shotgun and a number of rifle rounds.

They also seized other property and electronic devices, including the iPad that had led them to the unit block in the first place.

The man has been charged with several offences including break-and-enter and breach of bail.
