​Cops: Thieves caught in the cloud, by accident

UPPER DARBY, Pa. -- Police are looking for two suspects who stole a pizza delivery man's car after they unknowingly uploaded photos of themselves to a cloud service using the victim's stolen phone.

The incident happened early June 29 at an Upper Darby, Pa. apartment complex, reports CBS Philly. A delivery man reportedly left his car running to deliver a pizza - that's when the two thieves allegedly stole the vehicle, along with $500 in cash and the cellphone, which were in the car.

The car was soon found ditched a few blocks away, but the cash and the phone were gone.

The cell phone's tracking device was reportedly turned off -- but not its photo stream. The next day, the victim noticed new pictures uploaded in his cloud account.

Police say the suspects they're looking for uploaded the photos of themselves - even some showing them apparently brandishing a sawed-off shotgun.

"The dummies starting taking pictures of one another," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told the station. "Started getting all these pictures that were apparently taken with the stolen cell phone."

Police released the photos on their social media accounts and have already been getting tips. Police say they want to take the pair into custody and determine if they could be responsible for other crimes in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Upper Darby police.
