Robbery suspect's selfies may lead to her arrest

Source: Victim Source: Victim

A suspected cell phone thief's selfie obsession may do her in.

"I'm tired of looking at her face every morning," said the victim, who did not want to be identified.

The robbery victim is still afraid of the woman who stole her cell phone. Selfies snapped by the suspect are automatically sent to the victim's email account.

"She's taking selfies every day, and every day I see this girl's picture, every day," said the victim.

Clearly, the alleged crook did not know the phone was synced to email when she swiped it at the Greyhound terminal as the two exited a bus from Nashville. The victim admits she let the woman borrow her phone to supposedly call a ride. But then the woman refused to give the phone back.

"I chased her, I wasn't thinking," said the victim. "I chased her because I was like 'give me my phone!'"

The victim chased her right into an awaiting car.

"And she got in the back seat and I got in behind her, and we were tussling," recalled the victim. "And I was like 'give me my phone!' But she refused to give it to me."

She said the suspect got away with her phone after kicking her out of the car.

"I thought about it after the fact, I could have really gotten hurt," said the victim. "But I was running on adrenaline."

The victim hopes the suspect's selfie obsession leads to her arrest. Meanwhile, she'll be more careful about who she lets borrow her phone, if anyone.

"Because, you know, that's just deceitful," said the victim. "Low down, you know. Just go buy your own."

Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 901-528-CASH (2274), texting 'AWARD' to 274637 or visiting
