Ego and thievery are not a good combination.

That’s what one cell-phone thief may soon discover, now that police have her photo, which showed up in the victim’s cloud storage after the thief took several selfies with the stolen phone.

The phone belongs to a female student at El Cerrito High School in California. She was walking home from school when a car stopped and a female jumped out and accosted her and stole her backpack, including the cell phone. Days later, the student contacted police and provided the photo of the thief, which had appeared in her online storage account.

According to a Nov. 19, 2015, UPI story, police now are searching for the cell-phone thief, courtesy of a very nice selfie.
