Ben Dostal of Atlanta, Georgia tracked his stolen iPhone to a mall machine that purchases used cell phones. But discovering his phone's location was the easy part for Dostal. The phone purchasing machine, run by California based processing company ecoATM, was not accessible by mall security so Dostal's phone was stuck in law enforcement red tape. Ryan Kuder, director of marketing for ecoATM said, "We'll make sure we do everything we can to be cooperative and get him his phone back as quickly as possible and have whoever took it brought to justice." Later, reporters were told by Kuder that Dostal would likely be able to retrieve his phone from the mall security officers that night (October 30th).
