Police in Stockton, California, were searching Tuesday for a suspect who they say has been photographing himself with a smartphone that he stole and uploading the images to the owner’s online storage account.
The Police Department on Monday released a selfie taken by the alleged thief and asked for the public’s help in identifying him. The photo shows the dark-haired suspect wearing a denim shirt, white T-shirt, necklace and wool cap.
The image is one of several that have been uploaded to the iPhone owner’s iCloud account, authorities said in a statement.
Anyone with information was asked to call the Stockton Police Department at 209-937-8377, Detective Darren Sandoval at 209-937-8176 or Crime Stoppers, which pays cash rewards up to $10,000, at 209-946-0600.
