Henry County police are searching for a man who allegedly broke into a car to steal a purse, then used a cell phone he found inside the purse to post a picture of himself on the victim's facebook page.

The victim's black Toyota Rav 4 was broken into on Sept. 26 at East Lake Academy daycare in McDonough, according to Henry County Police Major Jason Bolton.

The purse-snatching the suspect took the photo of himself, but most likely did not know it was automatically uploaded to the victim's Facebook page because of special programmed settings.
