Default What to do if someone steals your n5?

How would you confront the person who stole your n5 if you knew the exact location of your phone by using Wheres My Droid app? What would you do? I'm curious

Match the imei number on the sticker that was on the phone with the phone if you took it off not sure if the imei is on the box or not

I'd call the cops and go to wherever it is with them just in case the person is dangerous and get it back.

I don't think a cop would be interested enough to help you knowing they have other sh1t the need to worry about

im pretty sure the phone is property and they are required to at least follow up on solid leads. then again, i live in a small town, cops are bored here
