Robbery suspect unknowingly sends self-portrait to victim

Here's a police spokesman who knows how to give a quote.

It seems a young man suspected of robbing a Pennsylvania woman took her mobile phone and snapped a picture of himself with it -- not realizing it was set up to send all photos taken to the woman's computer.

When the photo showed up, she identified the suspect. Quoth Lt. Frank Vanore:

"We really appreciate him taking a picture of himself."

A master of understatement. Read the full story on the Philadelphia Daily News web site.
