A thief may have made a critical mistake in a recent Langley heist – forgetting a cell phone at the scene.
“Someone broke into our garage last night!… And they dropped something! Their phone! In my car!” said the woman whose house was burglarized in a social media post.
She decided to make the mistake public by posting a picture of a phone which features a close-up selfie of the alleged thief as the wallpaper.
The suspect made off with credit and bank cards and proceeded to use them immediately, according to Langley woman.
Both the people featured on the phones wallpaper were quickly identified by comments on social media after the original post was shared 495 times.
The Langley woman said she has contacted police.
