Misuse of Apple Find My saw a SWAT team descend on a 77-year-old grandmother for no reason

A 77-year-old grandmother opened her door to a SWAT team earlier this year because they thought a stolen truck and weapons were hidden in her garage. They thought that solely because someone had used Apple’s Find My network to locate it. But there was a problem.

That problem was the big blue circle displayed on the Find My app, highlighting that it wasn’t sure exactly where the truck was because there was no firm location available. But that didn’t stop a police officer from getting a search warrant and letting a SWAT team lose the woman.
