A man who snapped a selfie using an iPhone at a Huntington Beach cellphone store is believed to be the person who stole the phone Sunday evening, authorities said.
The man arrived at the AT&T store at 8162 Talbert Ave. about 6:30 p.m. and began looking at a display iPhone 6S, police said in a Facebook post.
He then asked a store employee for the phone’s passcode so he could see its features. The employee told police he saw the man take a photo of himself, yank the phone from the wall when the employee wasn’t looking, run out of the store and take off in a blue Ford Focus, the report said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Huntington Beach Police information hotline at (714) 375-5066.
