Victim recovers stolen phone after suspect sells it at an ecoATM

“I found a stolen iPhone sold at an ecoATM kiosk. The iPhone had been lost by the owner hours before. The suspect was identified and digital pictures of the ecoATM transaction captured him with a female adult and female juvenile. The suspect was on probation for domestic violence for a brutal domestic violence incident. He was restrained from the victim and her children who were coincidentally with him during the transaction. The suspect was eventually arrested following a probation check-up and confessed to breaking the restraining order. In addition, the suspect confessed to taking the phone while at the same restaurant the victim had originally reported.”
