HOUSTON (AP) Two men arrested in Houston are accused of stealing an iPad and using it to take selfies that they unknowingly uploaded to the owner's iCloud account.

The men appeared in the photos displaying money they are also accused of taking from the victim.

Investigators arrested the pair on theft charges late Wednesday.

The iPad, other electronics and thousands of dollars were stolen from the victim's truck Jan. 8.

He later noticed his iCloud account had images of the men holding $100 bills.

Some stolen items were dumped behind a Starbucks. The victim believes his iPad connected to the Starbucks Wi-Fi and the images synced to his iCloud account.

He shared the images with the media. The photos ended up online, helping authorities identify the suspects.

Further details weren't immediately available.
