Mattew LaCroix was arrested last December after it was discovered he set up a fake Facebook page for his boss, A.T. Wall.
The Marion County Department’s Facebook page has helped track down over half of all missing probationers in the county.
A man in Florida was charged with domestic battery for attacking a woman who confronted him when he changed his Facebook relationship status to single.
The legal system down under takes Facebook very seriously. The first New Zealand Facebook arrest occurred yesterday when the Queenstown police posted images of a burglar on their Facebook Fan Page, according to The Register. The images were garnered from the security cameras at the Frankton Arms Tavern early yesterday morning.
When the thief broke into the tavern and attempted to crack open the safe, he not only failed to open it but he removed his mask as well. Then he ran, leaving an estimated $11,040 in the safe and a gleaming image of his mug for security cameras. The local police posted images of the burglar in newspapers and news websites, but it was the images posted on Facebook that ultimately led to the man’s arrest.
