(Newser) – He's not caught yet, but a burglar in Venice, California, could soon join the annals of criminals done in by technology. Police say the man entered a home while the occupants were sleeping, picked up an iPhone, and triggered an app that recorded a selfie video, reports CBS Los Angeles. Even though he walked off with the phone, the owner was able to access the video remotely—and police were very happy to share it with the public. The area has been hit by 30 similar burglaries this year, say police.
