PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Two people suspected of stealing a man's cell phone turned it in to police Tuesday, according to the owner of the phone, Eddie Rich.

The move comes after the suspects Rich believes took the phone took photos of themselves with it, which were automatically sent to Rich, thanks to an app he had installed on his phone.

Rich said that police told him the boss of the man in the photos saw our story air Monday night, and allegedly told the employee to figure things out.

Police confirm that the phone was turned in, and that the case is under investigation.

Rich says he plans on pressing charges.
