Come on Danielle, you are smarter than this……
Police said 27-year-old Danielle Saxton, of West Frankfort, shoplifted from a downtown boutique last week. Then, she posted pictures of herself wearing the stolen merchandise, police said. The images quickly spread on Facebook, and led officers straight to her.
“What she stole was a very distinct leopard dress,” store co-owner Kert Williams told ABC affiliate WSIL TV . “(She stole) A dress, a couple shirts, some jewelry, couple items like that,” Williams said.
Williams reviewed video from store security cameras and posted about the theft on Facebook. Thanks to the pictures on Saxton’s Facebook account, other users immediately put two and two together.
“We just had a description and a direction of travel, but when the social media aspect played into it, we were able to identify who it was. And by looking at the background of the photograph we were able to pinpoint where she was at,” said Police Chief Shawn Talluto.
Danielle has removed the photos from Facebook, better late than never I guess.
