The battle against subway cell phone thieves has been ongoing. SEPTA said last year on average, 39 cell phones were lost or stolen each month throughout their mass transit system.

They recommend everyone download free apps that will track a phone if it’s lost or stolen, to help make the phones less attractive to thieves.
