Facebook photo of stolen puppy leads to arrest
Another case of social networking to the rescue.
When Jennifer Drotos, of Lakeland, went to check on a litter of pit bull puppies she had planned to sell, she noticed that two of the puppies ¿ valued at $1,200 ¿ were gone, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
Drotos' daughter turned to social networking to solve the case, offering a $100 reward on her Facebook page to anyone who found the missing puppies, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
One of her daughter's friends informed her that she had seen a picture of her mom's ex-boyfriend, 22-year-old Tony Anderson II, holding one of the puppies on his Facebook page, according to a Polk County Sheriff's Office press release.
He told detectives he gave one of the puppies to a friend with the intent of collecting $200 from him for the puppy, and he kept the other puppy, according to the release.
Anderson isn't the only one to get nabbed after posting pictures their illegal activity on Facebook.
