Man in mystery selfie comes forward in LA County

Man in mystery selfie comes forward in LA County

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say they've identified the couple whose selfie was snapped with a Southern California burglary victim's phone.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Joshua Dubin says Thursday that a man came forward and is working with detectives. The woman also has been identified.

Investigators have not released the man's name, but Larry Beltran Jr. tells KNBC-TV that he and his girlfriend are the people in the photo. Beltran says his aunt bought the iPhone at a swap meet and says he's humiliated to see his photo widely circulated.

Officials released the selfie Wednesday and have branded the pair persons of interest, not suspects, in the theft.

A Santa Clarita woman whose home was ransacked and electronics were stolen July 30 spotted the selfie in her cloud account.
