iPad puts thieves' pictures online, suspects arrested

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Clovis police have tracked down three people accused in a recent theft, thanks to a lot of help from the suspects themselves.

The suspects are accused of stealing an iPad from a shopper at Costco in Clovis back in February. Then they apparently used the tablet to take photos of themselves.

Those pictures were uploaded to the victim's iCloud via Wi-Fi and investigators had no problem figuring out who they were trying to find.

Clovis police say the suspects saw media coverage of the story Monday night and turned themselves in.

The iPad was recovered and will be returned to its owner.
