LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville suspect made a big mistake when he used a stolen iPhone to take pictures of himself -- pictures that were instantly viewable by the victim.
Late last year, a woman reported that her car had been broken into and her $700 iPhone had been stolen.
Police say she later replaced her iPhone with an iPad. Both devices had the same user name and photo account -- so the victim was able to use her iPad to view any images taken on her iPhone.
As it turned out, police say 38-year-old Derrick L. Booker had possession of the stolen iPhone on Dec. 18, and used the iPhone to take several pictures of himself. The victim was able to access these images via her new iPad, according to an arrest warrant.
The woman took the photos to police, and police say an officer quickly recognized Booker from a series of booking photos he had recently seen in 2012. Police say he had an "extensive criminal history" and is well known to the officer.
A warrant was issued for Booker's arrest and he was taken into custody on Jan. 31. He's charged with receipt of stolen property.
