Selfies provide potential clues after Tulsa burglary

TULSA, Okla. — Quick facts:

  • A 77-year-old Tulsa man says someone stole his iPhone and wallet.
  • He says he later found pictures of three strangers on his iCloud.
  • Police want to identify the three people, whom they are calling persons of interest.

Tulsa police say they are looking to identify multiple persons of interest after detectives say iPhone selfies of three people showed up on a burglary victim’s iCloud.

Police say it all started when a thief targeted a 77-year-old Tulsa man last week while he was mowing his lawn.

The man told FOX23 that someone broke into his truck and stole his iPhone and wallet.

The victim has surveillance video of the crime, but it’s too far away to identify the suspect.

He says when he got a new phone and signed into his iCloud, though, a video of three strangers popped up on the account.

Police are calling the people persons of interest, because while they do have the victim’s cell phone now, detectives aren’t certain if it was one of them who committed the crime.

The victim says he knows he’s probably never getting his stuff back, but he does hope this video will help them crack the case of who is responsible.

If you recognize them, call Crime Stoppers at  (918) 596-2677.
