JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Two burglary suspects are in custody after the iPad they are accused of stealing lead police to their doorstep.

Danyrell Floyd, 28, and 25-year-old Christopher Deering were allegedly caught red-handed after burglarizing a home in the 1000 block of Fountain Road Saturday, according to a release from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

When the victim returned home Saturday after being gone for six hours, he discovered his home had been burglarized. 

The victim also found that all four burners on his stove were on "HIGH" and several napkins were smoldering. The victim believes he got home just in time or his home would caught on fire. 

According to the release, the victim's home was ransacked; every room had been entered by the suspects. Computers, televisions, surround sound system, camera, clothing, towels and other items were missing.

A feature on the victim's stolen iPad showed a GPS location on his iPhone, which led detectives directly to the stolen device.

When JSO arrived to the traced address in the 1200 block of Labelle Street, Floyd was allegedly sitting on the steps in front of an apartment with what appeared to be a tablet device in her lap. It was determined it was the victim's iPad, the release detailed.

Deering was spotted standing in front of a nearby apartment wearing the victim's monogrammed T-shirt with the victim's name "Larry" embroidered on the front and also was wearing his FSU Pajama bottoms, that were stolen. 

The suspects were arrested on charges of arson, burglary and dealing in stolen property and booked into jail.

Floyd is currently being held on a $111,006 bond in the Duval County Jail. Deering is being held on a $225,006 bond.
