We’ve all heard weird stories about people who accidentally expose their identities when after they commit a crime. Now we’re found another one to add to your collection of theft stories. A Philadelphia teenager turned himself in to the police after his self-portrait was captured on a cell phone he was accused of stealing. What he didn’t know was that the phone was programmed to send pictures back to the owner’s home computer. After the owner passed the photo to the police, the person accused of theft turned himself in. The police should be fairly happy for the help received on this case, wouldn’t they?
