Madison Police worked with a theft victim to get her stolen cell phone back Tuesday afternoon.
A 25-year-old woman realized her phone was missing after coming home the night before from a downtown restaurant.
Shortly after that, a man started contacting her boyfriend through the phone, saying "How much are you going to give me to bring you back your phone?" in a text message.
The woman and her boyfriend worked with police to set up a sting at the S. Park St. McDonald's.
When the suspect showed up, he met with an undercover officer pretending to be the owner of the phone. When the suspect suggested a price for the phone's return, he was arrested.
The suspect gave a fake name, and claimed another man had given him the phone after finding it on the ground.
41-year-old Miguel Aragon was arrested on charges of Receiving Stolen Property and Resisting/Obstructing, and on warrants.
