LOVELAND, Colo. - Police are investigating whether a man who apparently snapped a selfie with an iPad reported as stolen from a Colorado gymnastics studio played a role in its disappearance.

A picture of the dark-haired, bearded man with a cigarette clamped in his mouth appeared Saturday in Premier Gymnastics' iCloud account, its collection of data stored on remote servers and available online.

After police in Loveland released the photo and asked the public for help finding him, Lt. Rick Arnold said Monday that investigators have identified him. Police say they aren't releasing his name because it's unclear whether he has any connection with the March 1 burglary.

In California, a selfie found on a phone at a church that had been burglarized last month helped lead police to a suspect.
