NEW YORK, March 9 (UPI) -- A New York woman said a man mugged her for her cellphone and then mugged in a different way -- posting a photo on her Facebook page of himself smoking pot.

The Bronx resident told police she was robbed of her cellphone around 3 a.m. March 2. Shortly thereafter, the woman said she noticed a photo on her Facebook page of the suspect, smoking marijuana.

The victim told police her phone and Facebook are linked so photos automatically upload.

Police have not arrested the suspect but are using the photo to help identify him, the New York Post reported Saturday.
