    You'll have to supply more information to get any advice. Though if you actually know the location of a stolen device "go to the police" would be the obvious advice (making the assumption that there is some sort of rule of law in whatever country you are in - I say that to make clear the extent to which we only know what you tell us).

    This is a complicated situation as a lot of police departments simply won't, or don't have the resources to devote to things like stolen mobile devices. They may contain invaluable data that means a lot to the owner but dollar-wise it's just petty thievery. In a densely populated area like NYC or Chicago if you report a lost tablet to a cop it's a matter of filing out a report and that'll get tossed into stack of thousands of other, similar reports, or just trashed in a day. Confronting the thief yourself could be risking your life.
    But more details as to where this location is might reveal something.
