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.
