iCloud Sends Pics Of Suspected Phone Thief

PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. (UPI) — A woman whose iPhone was stolen on a Florida-based Disney cruise said the alleged thief accidentally sent her the photos he took with the pilfered device.
Katy McCaffrey, who said her phone was stolen during an April ride on the Disney Wonder cruise ship, said the suspected thief, a worker on the ship, apparently did not know how to turn off the iCloud function, which automatically sends pictures taken with the phone to McCaffrey’s computer, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.
McCaffrey said she identified the suspect by reading his name tag in one of the photos he took and he posted his pictures to Facebook in an album titled “Stolen iPhone Adventures.”
Disney Cruises said the employee has been placed on “administrative leave.”
“We take these matters very seriously. We have a zero tolerance policy for this type of behavior,” a spokesman said. “We recovered the phone and we’ve been in touch with the guest.”
