Submission + - Location stolen iPad insufficient for warrant for Dutch Authorities->

lbalbalba writes: A location message send from a stolen iPad by an anti-theft application, turns out to be insufficient 'evidence' to issue a search warrant for the Dutch authorities. A Dutch man reported his iPad as stolen to the Dutch authorities last month. Despite the fact that the rightful owner was able to locate his iPad within hours of the theft, thanks to the anti-theft application he had installed, the Dutch authorities did not issue a warrant to perform a search. According to the prosecutors, a search warrant is 'a very heavy measure', that should only be used when there is 'sufficient suspicion'. The theft report by the owner was viewed as 'no objective evidence' in the case.
