Man arrested and charged with stealing iPad in U-M's Angell Hall

By Kyle Feldscher

A 22-year-old man was arrested and charged with a felony for stealing a woman’s iPad from the computing center at the University of Michigan’s Angell Hall on Saturday.

Gregory Juliano faces one count of larceny in a building after being caught with the stolen iPad, according to U-M police.

The woman reported the iPad had been left unattended in the computing center at Angell Hall, 435 S. State St., according to police.

Officers responded to the area at 11:22 a.m. Saturday, according to police. Juliano, who has been enrolled at U-M, was arrested with the iPad by Ann Arbor police officers later that day, police said.

He’s been arraigned and was being held in the Washtenaw County Jail on Monday morning on a $15,000 bond, according to court records.

He’s scheduled to be back in court for a preliminary exam at 8:30 a.m. April 12, according to court records.

The problem is that this happened on UM property and needs to be dealt with harshly to deter others from doing the same. I hope he is sent away for life.

Most folk don't leave that kind of gadget lying around! Also install the app for "Find my Ipad." I have one on my smartphone! Lock it up!

I guess the best thing to do when something is left un attended, is leave it alone eh?

Did the genius realize that most kids have an iPhone app that lets them track the location of their iPad?

Smart people make the best ciminals. What amazes me is that supposedly smart people a) Leave their iPads unattended just sitting there when they know they are coveted and b) That someone smart enough to try to steal it would get caught -- i.e. not smart enough to be a good criminal...a quick google search will bring up lots of information on the student implicated in this theft, and he's not someone anyone would expect would do this type of thing. Hope he wasn't planning a career in law, politics, or business....

It always amazes me that people that are smart enough to get into Michigan would commit such petty crimes.

Don: Stealing a person's iPad is a far worse crime than stealing for example, a bicycle of similar value, because the iPad can contain personal information that can result in far more than a few hundred dollars of loss and potentially subject every contact in every email they have received to some sort of fraud, harassment, or worse. Part of my point here, is that if you see such a device lying around, secure it and make certain that it gets back to the owner, as the privacy and security you are preserving, may end up being your own.

Felony theft for an iPad. Guess that is one way to pump up the police overtime pay. Let's lock him up for a few months, keep him on probation for a couple years, spend 30 or 40 grand in tax dollars and then have a convicted felon sucking up to the welfare trough for the next decade or three because he is unemployable. Talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face.

Should read "what would you"

What what you have them charge him with?

$15,000 bail and felony charges for taking something worth a couple hundred bucks that was left unattended...? You'd think he'd stabbed the victim as well!

It goes back to one of the early lessons of childhood: If it ain't yours, don't touch it.

I have had items of value stolen from me, as I also had my kid brother punch me in the nose once. Both warranted an appropriate response, neither being felony charges. The fact is the punishment does not fit the crime. Your anger does not justify retribution, as it is not objective in any way and is entirely self serving.

Excuse me but if it was YOUR iPad you wouldn't think wasn't that big of a deal. Theft is theft and I'm glad they are prosecuting this guy to the fullest extent as they should be. Let's hope you never have something of value stolen from you Don and you don't have to experience that horrible feeling of violation.

Going to say the same thing when they start chopping off hands for shoplifting like they do in Saudi Arabia?

It's still the victims property.
