Lakeside PD posts mirror selfie from Walmart shoplifter they say left behind phone

The suspect is encouraged to contact Lakeside police for both his phone and a shoplifting charge.

LAKESIDE, Colo — When you’re feeling your look, there’s nothing wrong with a good mirror selfie, you know?  

But here’s an instance where the mirror selfie struck back.

The Lakeside Police Department posted a photo they say features a man they allege left his phone behind while shoplifting at the tiny Colorado town’s Walmart.

“Please contact the Lakeside Police Department for your cellphone and your shoplifting charge,” a Facebook post from the department reads. “Hope to see you soon!”

The Lakeside Police Department said officers tried to go to the suspect's home to return his phone, but that he wouldn't let them in. 

Now there's a warrant for his arrest. 

For what it’s worth, Lakeside is a real town. Sure, just eight people live there, but in addition to the Walmart and the liquor store within city limits, there’s also an amusement park.
