iPad Stolen, Pictures Of Thieves Taken. One Now Identified.
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) —
One of three people who took photos of themselves from a stolen computer tablet has been identified, authorities said.
A woman, whose name was not released, went to the Reedley Police Department Tuesday morning after relatives told her that KMPH showed an image she and two other people took of themselves that were then automatically uploaded to the Internet from a stolen Apple iPad.
The woman told Reedley police officers that she found the iPad at a Clovis Costco near Ashlan and Peach avenues and did not steal it.
Reedley police turned the case over to the Clovis Police Department who plan to submit a "misappropriation of property" report with the Fresno County District Attorney's Office.
The woman was not arrested, but under state law, it is a misdemeanor crime not to turn in any item that can be identified.
No other details on the theft were immediately available.
