Couple's 'Selfie' Could Link Them To Burglary

Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 04:54 PM CDT

Would burglars be dumb enough to post selfies on their victim's cloud account? That's what Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators are trying to determine.

Detectives on Wednesday released photos of a man and woman that
mysteriously appeared on a Santa Clarita woman's online account days
after thieves broke into her home through a window and ransacked the
place.The crooks stole cash and either her cellphone or tablet, Deputy Joshua Dubin said.

The photos, apparently taken with the stolen device, were uploaded to
the woman's account after the July 30 break-in, he said. They show a
smiling man with short, dark hair, a smiling woman with longer brownish
hair, thick painted eyebrows and heavy mascara, and a shot of the two
together posing on a pillow.

The victim doesn't know the pair, who are considered "persons of interest," and investigators want to talk to them, Dubin said.

"Did they buy stolen property? I don't know. Or are they the
residential burglary suspects?" Dubin said. "There needs to be an
explanation as to why their selfies are showing up on this person's
cloud account."
