This undated photo provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department shows two people who appear in 'selfie' portraits found on the cloud account of a Southern California burglary victim. Deputy Joshua Dubin said investigators don’t know if they’re the burglars but they sure are “persons of interest.” Dubin says a Santa Clarita, Calif., woman returned home on July 30, 2014, to discover thieves apparently had broken into her home and ransacked the place, taking cash and electronics, including either her cellphone or tablet. A few days later the woman logged into her cloud computer account and saw photos taken after the burglary of a man and woman she didn’t know. Dubin says investigators want to find them and determine whether they might have bought stolen property, or perhaps swiped it themselves. (AP Photo/Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department)
