Well, the phone finally surfaced - on Craigslist!
NY Hotel manager Marc Marrouche was arrested on March 5th after getting busted by an undercover cop who offered to buy Mz. Hilton's cell for a cool $5k!
Marrouche's ex-girlfriend found the cell phone at Marquee night club in '05 and handed the stolen propery off to the hotel manager. Marrouche has been charged with criminal possession of stolen property and could face up to a year in jail.
Sucks to be him!
