Lollapalooza has attracted some of the biggest names in music, but for a cellphone thief at the annual festival, the only tune they’ll be singing is “Jailhouse Rock.”
That’s because the Chicago Police Department was able to apprehend the suspect, who allegedly stole 60 phones at the festival this weekend.
In a post on their Twitter account, the department announced that they recovered the phones and apprehended the suspect:

The apprehension was a victory for Chicago police, who have had to arrest at least 12 people so far at the festival. They only had to arrest a dozen concertgoers last year, making this year far busier than usual.
