HOUSTON – Smart phones are expensive and that makes them a very popular target among thieves. But this is a story about a phone that’s apparently smarter than the people who stole it.

Chau Nguyen was at the Galleria’s Hello Kitty store with her children when she put her iPhone in her stroller pocket.

Within seconds, it was gone.

"I turned around and said, ‘My phone’s missing’ and the clerk said, ‘I saw some girls in here,’" Nguyen said. "At that point, I called the phone company to turn off the phone."

The phone was turned off, but its camera wasn’t. So imagine Nguyen’s surprise when she noticed photos of complete strangers being automatically uploaded to her iCloud.
