Recently, a group of young people used the smartphone they stole from someone near a bus stop in HCM City’s District 10 to take a selfie.
The robbers, including two living in District 10, took the selfie to celebrate their clever deed. Or so they thought.
The phone was connected with its owner’s email address. Shortly after the selfies were taken, they entered the email inbox of the user who promptly posted the photos on social media, hoping to find the thieves.
The image quickly caught the attention of social network users, who expressed anger at the brazen robbery. Though the criminal investigation is ongoing and the rogues are still at large, it will be a valuable lesson for the robbers.
