Brooklyn burglar takes selfie with stolen cellphone: NYPD
Police are looking for a woman suspected of stealing a cellphone in Brooklyn and accidentally uploading a selfie to the owner’s online account.
The woman allegedly broke into a 26-year-old man’s Canarsie apartment and snatched the phone around 4 a.m. Jan. 23, police said.
Later, cops said the woman took a selfie with the cellphone and the image was uploaded to the rightful owner’s account.
Last fall, police said two muggers in Harlem also unwillingly sent selfies to cops.
Police ask anyone who recognizes the woman or knows anything about the burglary to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), submit a tip online or text 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
