Martinez Thief Takes Selfies with Stolen Phone


Investigators have pictures of a cell phone thief after the dummy took smiling selfies on the stolen phone, photos that uploaded automatically to the victim’s iCloud account.

The thief came into a Martinez tattoo shop owner Jan. 6 and talked with the owner in the waiting room. When the owner stepped back into a tattoo room to prepare a chair, the lady grabbed the owner’s $500 cell phone from the waiting room and bolted out of the store.

The owner followed the woman outside and saw her and a man driving away in a burgundy sedan, authorities said.

But the victim was able to turn over these images to Columbia County authorities when they appeared on his iCloud account from his stolen phone.

How would you feel if someone grabbed your phone and ran, and then took a smiling selfie? Let’s help stop this dim-witted dame. If you recognize her, call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at 706-541-2800.
