Loveland Colorado Police released this photo on Monday, March 10, 2014, showing a man who is a person of interest in a burglary at Premier Gymnastics where an iPad was taken. On Saturday, March 8, this photo appeared in Premier's business iCloud account. "The investigating officer would like to talk to this man to find out what he knows about the burglary and the stolen items," according to a police release.

LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) — 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.
