Police: Woman posted selfies in stolen dressJuly 20, 2014 @ 8:28 am
WEST FRANKFORT, Ill. (AP) -- Police investigating the theft of clothing and jewelry from a southern Illinois boutique say they arrested a woman after she posted Facebook photos of herself wearing one of the stolen items.
WSIL-TV (http://bit.ly/1yLsEW6 ) reports that police arrested 27-year-old Danielle Saxton, of West Frankfort, earlier this month on misdemeanor retail theft charges. She's free on her own recognizance.
Authorities say a distinctive leopard-print dress was among the items stolen July 11 from Mortie's Boutique in West Frankfort.
The store's co-owner, Kert Williams, says he posted about the stolen items on Facebook and that people who saw Williams' posting and those of Saxton made the connection and helped police.
Online court records don't show whether Saxton has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
