LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police say a Louisville man is charged with stealing an iPhone, and it is what he did with that phone that led police to his door.

Derrick Booker, 38, used the phone to take pictures of himself, which ended up on the victim's iPad because both were synced to her iCloud account.  The iPhone owner recognized Booker and called police.

According to police, Booker does have an extensive criminal history, and is well-known by the victim.
