It's creating quite the stir as Allen Engstrom is posting pictures of the person he says stole the device and is now on a mission to get it back.
He says the woman is either knowingly or unwittingly sending him pictures from the stolen iPad to his phone through photo streaming on the iCloud.
Engstrom's not sure if posting her picture for all to see will work but in the meantime he says he's having some fun with it.
He said, "Every time I get a picture of her it's like a continuing fountain of entertainment."
He says he hasn't filed a report with law enforcement yet but with all the encouragement he says he will likely do so.
Police say unless she legitimately had no clue she has a stolen iPad she could face theft charges.
