Sometimes - but not always - news reporters get exactly what they are looking for when covering a story.
For one news crew from CBS News affiliate WUSA in Washington, D.C., they got a little more.
The news crew's vehicle was burglarized while they were working on a story about a controversial app that alerts people to "sketchy" neighborhoods, WUSA reports.
The crew had locked their news van on a street in Petworth in Northwest, D.C.
while they were out in the neighborhood conducting interviews. When they returned they found the lock had been popped out of the door of their news van, and that most of the crew's gear had been stolen.
Because the thieves stole the cell phone of one of the crew members, they were able to use the "Find my iPhone" app to track down some of their goods to dumpsters in another D.C. neighborhood.
The crew was able to recover some of the stolen items from the dumpsters. The entire crew returned to WUSA's broadcast house unharmed.

I love my Find My Phone app. Helps me keep track of Mr. Mercat.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
My sides hurt.
Breaking: from CBS News.
Racist white people identify sketchy “neighborhoods”.
A couple more conservatives are born...
News Crew Robbed While Investigating Area Featured on ‘Sketchy Neighborhood’ App
Wonder what ever happened to Microsoft’s ‘Avoid Ghetto’ app?
BWAA-HAA-HAA! You can pretty much write the story they were going to write yourself: Deep Concern, followed by Probing Questions, followed by Lingering Worries. But reality intervened.
So, the app worked?
Since 99% of “journalists” are Dems, and these were from DC, well....
Sometimes in life, things happen....just as they are supposed to happen.
Har har har
“while they were out in the neighborhood conducting interviews”
reporter: you have no choice but to steal and sell drugs because white employers won’t hire you, isn’t that correct?
I hope they got the footage.
They will also Monitor The Situation
This is a funny story. Liberal news people go into an area which an app identifies as a bad neighborhood. Their storyline was to be about how they were there, and that it really was not a bad area. But how can they report that, when their experience with crime proved that the app was right about that area.
not a chance. born an idiot, in the club for life.
It would be interesting to find out where the morons of this news crew that got robbed live in the DC metro area. Surely they have to know that some of the parts around DC are “no go zones”? I mean, guys you live in DC and you should know this already. Did you think that these high crime area were a hoax, or what? I don’t live in DC and I know there are places in town that you just do NOT go at certain times or at no times at all.
Wonder what ever happened to Microsofts Avoid Ghetto app?
That one was based on published crime statistics, this new one is based on users own self reported feelings of "sketchiness".
Washington DCs highest concentration of criminals is at the White House and Capitol Hill
Just youths having some fun those pesky Amish boys.
Sketchy neighborhood means at least 5 blocks either side of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.
This is funny, and a learnable moment.
But they will not learn.
They make the criminals in the hood look like rank amateurs.
