I have your phone, here is my selfie!


— CRANSTON, R.I., April 8 (UPI) -- When a Rhode Island woman had her phone stolen on Saturday night it was bad enough.

Later on, when strange selfies of the suspected thieves began arriving in her inbox, it just added insult to injury.

She decided to do something about it.

The woman took the pictures, which show one teenager posing in a Chicago Bulls shirt, the same teen in a Miami Heat hat and three young men flexing with their shirts off, and posted them on the Cranston Patch Facebook page in an effort to identify the possible thieves.

The theft happened at the Galaxie Restaurant.

Most of the photos are tagged with the phrase, “I stole a phone from someone’s mom.”

Although it appears the suspects still haven’t been identified, numerous people are commenting on the story and giving Betty Ann advice about how she can recover her phone.
