AUSTIN (KXAN) — If your cell phone went missing during the ACL Fest, Austin Police might have it. A number of phones were stolen during weekend one, and investigators in Florida intercepted them.

They were found in a package with a number of phones shipped from Austin. Three Colombian nationals were arrested and charged by the FBI with trafficking stolen property across state lines. The suspects have since been deported.

According to APD, this is the largest item-reunification effort the department has ever handled.
