In the United States, a man is being searched by New York police for theft of a cell phone on a city subway line. The crime occurred on September 11 and, surprisingly, the suspect immediately took several selfies, which were saved in the device and are now used by the police to identify him.

Detail is that the photos were saved in the Google Drive storage account, which belongs to the owner of the stolen cell phone. The images saved on the platform show that the wanted person has a bone tattoo on his right hand.

He is still on the loose, but police are struggling to arrest him soon. “This guy seems to like selfies, but we prefer to see him in a police portrait,” reported Edward Delatorre, the New York Police Department traffic chief.

According to department officials, the suspicious man was on the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue subway line at about 12:15 pm local time. After boarding the F platform, he allegedly stole a Samsung Galaxy phone from a 49-year-old passenger.

However, after making an escape from the crime scene, the boy took several pictures of himself. He even poses for the camera on the stolen cell phone.

The attitude, which was pointed out as not very intelligent, ended up attracting the attention of the local police. The authorities of the portfolio seek the subject based on the photographs and hope to obtain information from any witnesses through a telephone hotline.
