SANTA CLARITA (CNS) - A young man whose selfie landed in the ``cloud'' of a Santa Clarita burglary victim whose iPhone was taken July 30 said he got the gadget from an aunt who bought it at a swap meet.
'`I didn't steal it,'' he told NBC4. ``I went to a swap meet and my aunt bought it for me,'' Larry Beltran Jr. said after showing up at the sheriff's station with his parents Wednesday -- hours after the sheriff's department provided the images to the news media, calling Beltran and his girlfriend persons of interest.
The iPhone was stolen in a burglary, and the owner later logged onto her cloud account and found a selfie showing a man and woman she did not know.
``It's embarrassing. I didn't have no idea it would be all over the news or anything, you know?'' Beltran said.
Beltran's aunt said she picked up two iPhones for $80 and gave one to her nephew, thinking she got a bargain.
``I didn't know I put my nephew in bad situation,'' she said.
