If you're going to Lollapalooza Day Four on Sunday, be sure to keep a hand on your phone. Chicago police said they arrested a suspect who was involved in the theft of a whopping 60 cellphones at Lollapalooza. All the phones were recovered, police said.

Sounds like the cops got an assist from some of their festy besties. “Great work by officers & concert-goers,” CPD tweeted.

Twelve people have been arrested through the first three days of Lollapalooza, and 16 people have been cited—mostly for fence-hopping attempts, according to the Office of Emergency Management and Communications. Head to the festival’s Lost & Found if you were one of the unlucky many who was separated from his or her device. And look out for each other out there.
