Stupid Criminal: Unfortunate 'selfie'

Posted: Updated:

Talk about an instance when taking a "selfie" was definitely not a good idea.

A man suspected of burglarizing a church in San Diego was busted by police after a self-snapped photo left behind at the scene led investigators straight to the alleged perpetrator.

According to the police, the church was burglarized by the suspect on Monday. Police say he took off with $10,000 worth of stolen items.

But police say during the burglary the suspect accidentally left his cell phone behind.

A property crimes detective was called in to examine the phone and on it, the detective found a very telling selfie.

And after some quick investigation the police located their suspected burglar.
