Police searching for suspect who stole phone, posted bizarre picture to social media

The Kearny Police Detective Bureau is hoping that someone will recognize a man that they say stole a cell phone and then posted a bizarre photograph of himself on the victim’s Instagram account.

In a Facebook post, the police department said the victim’s iPhone was reported stolen on May 16th and shortly afterwards, the photograph was posted.

The photo showed a bearded man with brown eyes, glasses and wearing a green fleece or jacket.

Anyone who can identify the person of interest is being asked to contact the Kearny Police Detective Bureau by emailing tips@kearnynjpd.org or by calling 201-998-1313 (2833). Police say all tips will remain confidential.
