Will.i.am's Alleged iPad Burglar App-rehended

7/13/2010 4:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Will.i.am's quest for justice may have finally paid off -- TMZ has learned cops just arrested a man accused of stealing a bunch of the rapper's stuff ... including the very iPad that helped crack the case.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ a 22-year-old male turned himself in to authorities yesterday in connection to a series of motor vehicle break-ins in the L.A. area -- including the pilfering of Will.i.am's Bentley.

We're told the man is accused of running a one-man crime wave that netted roughly $25k worth of loot -- including $17,000 worth of Will.i.am's property ... including his iPad.

As we previously reported, cops are crediting Will for helping crack the case -- after he used the built-in tracking system in the iPad to help locate the perp's whereabouts.

Crime solving ... there's an app for that.

F.B.I. Agent Will.i.am has solved the crime. He helped his fellow officers apprehend the suspect, who stole his property worth $17,000, including his iPOD. Good job, Will.i.am! You got the perp locked up, and your property worth $17,000, cluding the precious lucky iPOD back. Well done! To the perp: "SHAME ON YOU!!!!"
