One man was arrested at Coachella last weekend (14Apr17) after police officers found 100 cellphones in his backpack.

Overall, Indio police said there have been fewer arrests at this point in the festival than previous year even though attendance is up.

Indio police said that multiple festival-goers reported thefts, and two different groups of suspects were identified as having multiple phones on them, reports The Desert Sun.

Police allegedly recovered more than 40 cellphones from the two groups, several forms of personal identification, credit cards and cash.

Suspicion was raised after several festival-goers used the "Find My Phone" function to trace their missing devices.

These arrests came a week after Queens resident, Reinaldo De Jesus Henao, 36, was picked up with 100 stolen phones at Coachella, officials said. The recovered items were turned into the festival's lost and found, located at the main entrance, south of the Ferris wheel, Marshall said.

All five have been charged with theft and conspiracy. He was released after posting $10,000 bail.
