If your Android device got stolen from your hands walking down the street, what lengths would you go to in order to recover your device. While some of us may take the loss and go through insurance for another one, one man did not want to let someone get away with his prized possession. In Palto Alto, Calif, one man thought he could swipe another's Android device on the street and get away with a free phone, but little did he know the owner would go to extreme measures to get this device back.

The local police got involved, along with a helicopter in an all out search and rescue mission for this device, which some may think is a bit extreme, but hey would you want to willingly hand all your personal information over to some stranger? Shortly after the search began the person was tracked down and the device returned to its rightful owner. Safe to say that Android devices mean more to some people then their wallet or car.
