SANTA CLARITA, California (KTLA)—

Santa Clarita Valley detectives were looking for the public’s help Wednesday finding two people whose photos appeared in the “cloud” after a burglary victim’s electronics were stolen from her home.

Electronics, cash and other property was stolen during the July 30 burglary, leaving the victim’s home ransacked and the mesh screen of her kitchen window cut out.Several days after a Santa Clarita woman’s home was burglarized, the photos appeared on her “cloud” photo account, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

A few days later, the victim noticed selfies showing people she did not know appearing on her cloud account, the Sheriff’s Department stated.

The photos, three of which were distributed by the department, show a man and a woman smiling and apparently lying in bed.
