LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested and charged with burglary after police say his photo appeared in the victim's iCloud.

According to the arrest report, an unidentified suspect walked into the victim's room in July of 2011 and stole an iPad valued at $700.

At some point, police say they identified 29-year-old Tony Alvis as the suspect. Alvis allegedly admitted to selling the iPad for $120.

Shortly after the iPad was stolen, police say the victim found a picture of Alvis in his iCloud. ("iCloud" is a term used by Apple to describe an account which stores digital content and pushes that content to the user's Apple devices.)

Alvis was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with burglary.
