LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A man reported his iPhone was stolen while he was staying at a Lufkin hospital on Wednesday.

Luckily, there's an app for that.

The man reported to police at 9:13 a.m. Wednesday that he was staying at Woodland Heights Hospital, located at 500 S. John Redditt Drive when his Apple iPhone went missing.

The man said he had an app installed on the phone which allowed him to track its location to an apartment complex, located at 1009 Ellis Ave. The officer learned a hospital employee was staying there, who had cared for the patient.

Police found the employee, Marciano Duro Casayuran, 46, of Lufkin, at the residence and arrested him on a charge of misdemeanor B theft.

Casayuran posted a $1,500 bond on Wednesday.

According to hospital spokeswoman Jennifer Stevens, Casayuran is no longer employed with the hospital.
