by on August 03, 2014 9:35 AM

State College police are working to identify a man who may have stolen a Samsung Galaxy S5 cell phone last month.

According to a news release from police, a woman contacted police after losing her phone near Canyon Pizza on July 12. Unable to track her lost phone, the victim eventually purchased another.

When she activated her new phone, she received a message from her previous phone’s security feature. While apparently trying to access the stolen or missing phone, it took a picture of the man and forwarded it to the victim.

Police are asking anyone who recognizes the man, or who has any other information about the incident, to call 814-234-7150 or submit an anonymous tip online.
