Modern technology has allowed for a lot of criminals to make rookie mistakes. This includes liking the photo the police are using on Facebook to track you down, sending selfies to your victim's mom, and maybe using stolen technology to capture your intimate moments.

For instance, Santa Clarita Valley deputies think the identity of two people lounging in bed in some selfies may be the key to a recent burglary.

The alleged burglary happened on July 30, when a woman came home to discover she was missing cash and other items, including some electronics, KTLA reports. It appeared that the burglars cut out the screen of a window in her kitchen and helped themselves to her property.

Several days later, photos the woman certainly did not take and of people she did not know started popping up in her cloud storage. Deputies are not calling these two suspects, but are calling them "persons of interest."
