MADISON, Wis. -

The use of tracking technology to find a stolen iPad led officers to recover more stolen items, according to Madison police.

Officers said a couple living on Piedmont Road woke Sunday morning to find they had been burglarized. The burglar entered through the garage and took a flat screen TV, video gaming system, wallet, laptop computer, rifle, shotgun, ammunition and an iPad.

The victims used software on the iPad to lead police to a home in the 6200 block of Raymond Road, according to officers. Police were not initially given permission to enter the home.

Meanwhile, a 48-year-old man told police he saw two men running with long gun cases who hid them in Lucy Lincoln Heistand Park on Prairie Road. The man led police to the guns, which officers found hidden under leaves beneath a tree.

Police said they also found the stolen television under leaves in the backyard at the home on Raymond Road. They said they found the victim’s credit cards in an empty bag of snack chips nearby.

A suitcase with a couple of stolen laptop computers was found in a leaf pile in the 1700 block of Rae Lane. Police said they found the gaming system in a backpack inside the home on Raymond Road.

Police followed the stolen iPad to a kiosk at West Towne Mall where police were told the device was brought for repair.

Gregory C. Busch, 19, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
