Police seek suspects who took iPhone of Greenwood grandmother


GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — An Indianapolis grandmother was targeted by thieves Wednesday morning in a Greenwood McDonald’s.

Police said they believe a man and a woman stole Sharon Keen’s iPhone from her table at the restaurant while she was getting her food. 

Keen is asking for the public’s help as she said the memories on the phone are priceless. Pictures tacked to a bulletin board in Keen’s home in Indianapolis are all the physical memories she has left of her grandchildren. 

“I feel violated and PO’d,” Keen said. 

That’s because her $300 iPhone was snatched as she met her mother for her daily breakfast at the McDonald’s off State Road 135 and Marlin Drive.

“We set our keys down, and I put my phone on the table to hold our space like we always do, and then my mother went up and ordered and I got the drinks and, as I went to set the drinks down, my phone was gone,” Keen said.

Greenwood police released surveillance photos of the male and female inside the McDonald’s who stole Keen’s phone and along with the hundreds of family photos on it. 

“It has all my contacts, and I didn’t write it down anywhere else,” Keen said. “Its got a lot of my daughter’s and grandkids’ pictures on it and special events they had.”

As police continue to search for the thieves, Keen said she has a message for whoever stole her smartphone. 

“You’re not very nice,” Keen said. “There’s a lot of bad people who make bad decisions, whether it’s drug or whatever. But, you’re not a very nice person. Don’t take my things. Those are mine. You know we all work hard to get what we have.”

If you know who the male and female are in the photos, contact Greenwood Police Department at 317-865-0300.
