Duo's 'selfies' lead police to Bonefish phone thieves, Ormond Beach cops say
Police say couple stole hostess' phone while picking up to-go order
ORMOND BEACH, Fla. – Ormond Beach police recovered a stolen phone after they said a couple stole it from a hostess at the Bonefish Restaurant Tuesday night.
Police said 27-year-old Bryce Dolph and his girlfriend walked in to pick up their food and walked out with the cellphone instead. However, it didn't take long for police to track them down.
The couple allegedly took several pictures of themselves and posted them on Facebook. The pictures were also uploaded to the victim's Google Plus account and she was able to turn them over to police. The social media site is a backup for storing pictures and videos that can be seen anytime a person logs into their Google account.
Police quickly tracked down Dolph and arrested him.
He is in the Volusia County jail on $23,500 bond. He's charged with contribute to delinquency/dependency of a minor and two counts of grand theft.
The girl who police said was also involved is a juvenile and wasn't arrested in this case.
Police said both admitted to stealing the phone to support their drug habits.
