Police seek woman in pictures from stolen iPod
Palm Beach Sheriff's Office looking for woman after selfies uploaded to victim's computer via iCloud
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Investigators in Palm Beach County are looking for a woman who investigators believe used a stolen iPod to take photos of herself, which were then uploaded to the burglary victim's computer.
The victim's husband had his iPad and iPod touch stolen out of his car when he took his children to South County Regional Park in Boca Raton on August 29.
On Sept. 12, his wife found new photos on her photo stream.
"I saw all these uploaded pictures of the girl that's using my son's iTouch," she said.
The woman, who asked not to be identified, said the device was in the woman's hand.
"I was shocked to see it and I couldn't believe it. She's on there posting, sticking her tongue out. It's crazy," she said.
The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office are employing computer forensics to try and track her down. The woman said the device was connected to iCloud, a wireless server available to Apple products.
"If it was uploaded somewhere, it contains Exif (Exchangeable image file format) files, which allows you to geographically locate the time and place where these images were taken, so [I] imagine the detectives will be using these kinds of methods," said Local 10 Tech Expert Craig Agranoff.
The victim offered a reward while sharing the photos across social media.
"It's floating all over Facebook in the hopes of finding this girl," she said. "So far, on Facebook, I have over 345 shares."
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call Palm Beach Crime Stoppers at 561-684-6333.
