CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Corvallis police posted a picture of a suspect in a credit card theft case on Facebook, drawing 26,000 views and quickly leading to an arrest.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times says a woman reported last week she’d accidentally left her debit card in the ATM machine at a credit union and somebody had taken money from her account. Police said it was more than $100.
Police posted a picture from a surveillance camera of the next person in line at the ATM.
A Facebook user called police the next morning, and six hours later police arrested Jeffery D. Hamann on charges of theft, identity theft and computer crime.
