Selfie-Sending iPhone Thieves Arrested


Gothamist reports that 16-year-old Khayyam Alexander and 18-year-old Fethi Nekrouf have been arrested for stealing 14-year-old James Pugliatti’s iPhone at a Manhattan party back in April — a crime they almost certainly would have gotten away with had they not Snapchatted a selfie to all of Pugliatti’s friends or used the device to send his mother a text reading, “Mom, I’m so horny.” (Mrs. Pugliatti contacted the police after that.) The pair has been charged with petit larceny, possession of stolen property, and being obnoxious jerks.
