Social media keeps getting better and better at taking down idiot criminals.
27-year-old Danielle Saxton of West Frankfort, Illinois stole a leopard print dress from a store called Mortie’s Boutique earlier this month. And then she took a few selfies in the dress and posted them on FACEBOOK.
One of the store’s co-owners also went on Facebook, and posted about the dress being stolen.
And since West Frankfort has a population of only around 8,000 people, there was obviously some overlap between the owner’s friends and Danielle’s friends.
A few people immediately pointed him to Danielle’s selfies, he called the cops, and Danielle was just arrested for misdemeanor retail theft.
