Israel: Smart Phone Thief Apprehended After Posting Selfie

droidA not-so-smart smart phone thief was apprehended by police after he took a selfie and posted the photo on the Facebook page of the person whose phone he stole.

A 21-year-old man, a new immigrant living in Lod was held up on Friday 20 Kislev by two men with a knife and screwdriver. They demanded his smart phone, which he gave them.

One of the thieves, a 17-year-old city resident, took a photo of himself and then changed the photo on the victim’s Facebook page to his. When the victim saw the photo he recognized it as being one of the men who stole his phone. He showed the photo to police. One of the policeman recognized the suspect, who was promptly taken into custody.

  1. surprising! the police usually do nothing here for theft. they blame it on: “he’s probably in some arab village already and sold it one” the only way to get police over is to say: ” a jew just hit an arab” and they’re there that minute.
