Deputies say a Boynton Beach man made a mistake when he pawned that stolen PlayStation 3: He left his picture on the console's hard drive.
Steinsberg Lubin, 24, now stands charged with pawning stolen property, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report.
On May 16, deputies got a call from Eduardo Perez, of West Palm Beach, 43, who reported someone stole his PlayStation 3. Detectives searched the county's pawn property database and discovered Lubin had pawned the console at Pawn World Pawnshop in Lake Worth.
Detectives turned on the console and discovered Lubin had downloaded a picture of himself to the console's hard drive. The face matched the driver's license photo Lubin gave to the pawnshop owner.
He got $60 in the deal. Detectives then called Lubin, who claimed he bought the game console in a street deal in Lake Worth. He denied stealing the console.
On Monday, deputies booked Lubin in the Palm Beach County Jail and he was later released on his own recognizance.
