Stolen iPhone records thief's cruise-ship adventures for all to see

Stolen iPhone records thief's cruise-ship adventures for all to see
First and foremost, don’t steal peoples’ stuff. It’s just not nice. But if you are the sort of person who would steal and keep say…someone’s iPhone… here’s a pro-tip for you: Wipe the damned phone! Otherwise the camera roll may share the images with the original owner and they could end up places you'd rather not see them, like say posted to a social networking site.

As you may have guessed, this isn’t some hypothetical discussion: Disney cruise passenger Katy McCaffrey had her iPhone stolen by an employee while she was on a Disney Wonder Cruise. The employee's name was apparently Nelson. How does she know? Because she can read his name tag in the photos he continued to snap using her iPhone, and those photos are now available on her Facebook account in a public album labeled “Stolen iPhone Adventures”. In it you can see Nelson, his apparent love interest, and the crew of the ship living it up. All that and more was recorded by the thief’s own hands.

We imagine the publicity will lead to Disney cruise management acting on poor Ms. McCaffrey’s behalf, but we hope the album doesn't disappear to quickly; as far as amusing public embarrassment for thievery (and stupidity) go, this has to take the cake. Check out some more images below, or click on the source link to see the entire album (and some cheeky narration).

I just read a different article on another site about a guy who stole a digital camcorder from a car. He got home and recorded a video of him saying to his girlfriend:

"Yes, this is the camera I just stole. But the cops won't figure it out." he then proceeds to walk around his house showing his different rooms and concludes by telling the camera his full name.

When the cops finally retrieved the camera they had all the evidence they needed. What a moron.

Some of the best content on the web is video of stupid criminals. Most common criminals are more Dr. Evil than Dr. Lecter.

'The employee's name was apparently Nelson How does she know?'

You need a '.' to separate these sentences...

BTW, that employee should be fired...no IFs, ANDs, or BUTs...

He's an employee on a cruise ship. If he found it, it should be turned in to the "Lost & Found" on the ship.

once you start using something as your own property it is stolen. its easy to steal something and if he found it he should have reported it like ibap stated. I guess i dont get your question on how does someone steal a phone, i thought that would be self-explanatory.

If he didn't steal it why would he label his album "stolen iphone adventures"... if he found it and didn't return it back... im pretty sure hypothetically i eould still consider it stealing... the most epic fail part of this story for me is that... why would a thief publicly say "stolen iphone" is he out of he his mind?

You know that you can't post a story about iphones or wp7 phones without an android idiot posting something about android. I love android but hate the users that drink the kool-aid. It's like "Story about Iphone got to represent droid".

Two things are abundant in the universe

2. Stupidity

This was an example of the latter
