Brooklyn Burglar Stole Phone, Uploaded Selfie: NYPD

Police are looking for the burglary suspect who allegedly snatched a phone from a Brooklyn home and unwittingly uploaded a selfie to one of the rightful owner’s online accounts.

The woman allegedly broke into the man’s apartment in the Canarsie neighborhood on Jan. 23 and stole the phone, police say. Sometime later, she took a photo of herself, and the image was uploaded to the man’s cell phone account.

If you recognize the woman or know anything about the theft, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
