SUFFOLK, Va., June 29 (UPI) -- A spokeswoman for the city of Suffolk, Va., says a burglar accidentally took his own picture with a victim's cell phone while robbing an area home.
City spokeswoman Debbie George said in a statement police are looking for the individual captured in a photograph taken by a cell phone belonging to an area homeowner this month, the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press reported Monday.
George said it appeared the male suspect had been attempting to make a phone call during the home break-in and accidentally captured his own image using the device's camera function.
The unidentified suspect fled the scene, leaving the phone and its incriminating photo behind, George added.
Information regarding the identity of the photogenic criminal could be worth up to $1,000 for tipsters if their clues result in his arrest, the Daily Press reported.
