SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (PIX11) – A couple is wanted by police after their lovey selfies were synced to a burglary victim’s cloud, authorities in Southern California said Wednesday.

Investigators said someone broke into a woman’s Santa Clarita home July 30, and made off with electronics, cash and other property.

When the victim returned home, she saw that her front door was unlocked and her kitchen window screen had been cut open, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Days later, she logged into her “cloud” account and saw photos in stream depicting two strangers, now dubbed persons of interest in the case, sheriff’s officials said.

The pictures, three of which were sent out by the sheriff’s department, show a man and a woman smiling and apparently lying in bed.

A woman claiming to be the woman in the photo called PIX11 News sister station KTLA to say she bought the phone from someone else.

Several tipsters have called detectives regarding the couple’s identity, but investigators say they still have no answers about how the pictures ended up on the cloud, KTLA reports.
