An important study tool is returned to a high school student thanks to social media.

In this digital age, it seems an iPad can pave the way to an 'A.'

"I use my iPad for my English classes," said Brianna Ramsey, a senior at Chickasha High School.

"She really needs that for her English class online, so it comes in really handy," said Connie Ramsey, Brianna's mom.

But, Brianna's $500 study guide turned up missing this week, stolen right from her Ford.

"I thought I maybe had misplaced it," Brianna said. "I wasn't sure if maybe I left it somewhere in the house."

It wasn't in her house.

It had somehow made it's way to the Chickasha Police Department, who were in the midst of investigating a slew of auto-burglaries near 9th and Grand.

"It's been kind of an increasing issue," Connie said. "We've had several on the street here."

Police posted their find on Facebook. As luck would have it, Brianna's 'prom photo' display was a dead giveaway.

"About 10, 12 people that I know of tagged me in it," Brianna said.

"We started getting flooded on Facebook with people tagging her," Connie said.

The iPad now needs to be fixed, and Brianna's a bit on edge.

"I felt really unsettled that someone had actually gotten in my car," she said.

But, in the end, police and social media brought her study guide home.
