Police in New York are seeking a man who stole a mobile phone from a woman. Ordinarily hundreds are stolen everyday, but this is different.

The man in question used the phone to take photos of himself smoking marijuana, and the phone was auto-configured to upload any photos taken to the owners facebook website account.

As such, the owner, and police now have a very good idea of who to look for, and when caught he could be facing drugs as well as theft charges - thanks to the evidence he himself supplied.
