Photo: Bronx Mugger Steals iPhone, Doesn't Realize he Posted His Photo to Victim's Facebook
Earlier this month a New York woman and her uncle were walking home from a nightclub when her iPhone was stolen.
On March 2, as Viviana Estrada and her uncle were walking home at about 3 a.m., they were approached by two men who asked for a dollar. When she told them she had no money one of them reached into her pocket and stole her iPhone 4S.
Estrada reported the incident to police but did not believe much would come of it. However, a short time later Estrada found something surprising on her Facebook page—photos of her mugger allegedly smoking marijuana.
It appears the brilliant thief did not realize the phone was still linked to Estrada’s social media page and began uploading photos.
The photos were turned over to the NYPD who have since released the photos. They are now asking that anyone with information call he NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS.
