Bungling phone thief caught after accidental photos
A bungling phone thief was caught red handed after sending pictures of himself to the mobile's owner.
A holiday-maker lost her phone while staying at a caravan park in Mablethorpe.
Another man at the resort found it, but decided it was 'finders keepers'.
But the stolen phone synced to the original owner's laptop, sending photos of the thief directly to her.

The man had taken photos of himself and his family at his caravan.
Police used the photos to identify the caravan and find who had been staying there.
A man from Hull was found to be the culprit - but restorative justice was used.
Police worked cross-county and Humberside Police were made aware.
They visited the man at home, who returned the phone, along with an apology.
PC Brailsford said, "If you find something of value, that clearly belongs to somebody else, you may be committing an offence by keeping it.
"This case was particularly suitable for a Restorative Justice resolution as the finder was clearly not a criminal mastermind and more a foolish person who thought it was his lucky day.
"The victim was delighted to get her phone back and the incident highlights the importance of mobile phone security."
