El Paso Police Looking for Cell Phone Thief Who Accidentally Took Selfie with Stolen Phone
— El Paso Times (@elpasotimes) March 26, 2015
The El Paso Police Department is sharing this photo of a guy they say stole a victim's smartphone. They hope someone will provide the name of the thief who helped himself to the cellie after the man he robbed outside a convenience store on Airway just off I-10 didn't have any cash on him.
The El Paso Times reports when the suspect tried to access the phone, its security app snapped a selfie of the suspect and sent it to the victim.
I love when criminals get caught because they steal technology they're not aware of or don't understand.
If you know who he is or have any information on the robbery itself call Crime Stoppers at 566-8477 or submit a tip online at crimestoppersofelpaso.org
