Smartphone thief uses the phone's camera to out himself on victim's Facebook page

Smartphone thief uses the phone's camera to out himself on victim's Facebook page
Walking in the Bronx in the middle of the night is not a good idea, as one 27 year unidentified woman found out when she became the victim of a crime that is all too common these days in the Big Apple. A thief wearing a blue hat, blue sneakers and an orange jacket ripped off her smartphone on March 2 near East Tremont Avenue and the Grand Concourse at around 3:00 a.m.

Imagine the unnamed victim's surprise when she checked her Facebook page and found the picture of the thief, blowing out smoke after taking a hit of marijuana. What the dope-y criminal didn't know was that the victim had set up her phone to send all of her snapshots directly to her Facebook wall. And while the guy is still free at the moment, it probably won't be too long before he is cuffed and taken away by one of New York's Finest.

Smart woman-Stupid thief! Either the phone's smarter than the thief...or the thief is stoned cold! If you have to be a thief, know what stuff you're trying to stealing!

I found a 3G ipad in the crapper about a month ago at the school my son was wrestling at. Very first thing I did was take it to a school employee. A crappy ipad is not worth going to jail over. No such thing as finders keepers with electronic gadgets that have cameras and gps. But if it was $100 cash with "no" wallet then it's mine. If it had a wallet then it's going to the owner.
