Burglar Took A Break To Post On Facebook
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.
If you ever wonder what your friends are doing as they send out Facebook messages, consider this. A man outside Rome reported a burglary. Investigators discovered a computer in the house displaying a Facebook homepage. Since the computer is not a Facebook member, police realized the intruder did it. He paused while stealing cash and jewelry to write Facebook messages. Police traced the sender and his next posting could be from court.
It's MORNING EDITION.
