Suspected iPhone thief shares a selfie that could get him busted

That caption along with the above photo could be what foils the robbery of an old iPhone. Why? Because the thief posted it to the victim’s Facebook account.

Courtney Jiles walked out to her car this week in Tampa Bay, Florida, to find that it had been broken into. The iPhone 4 in her center console had been taken. It was going to be a gift for her father.

As sweet justice would have it, Jiles was surprised to log into her Facebook and see a strange selfie shared from her account. The apparent thief appears to be almost as relaxed and carefree as he is idiotic.

Police haven’t found the selfie taker yet, but hopefully it’s only a matter of time.
