According to CBS news
(CBS) Everyone you consider a “friend” on Facebook, may not have the friendliest intentions. That was the hard lesson homeowners in New Albany, Ind., believe they learned after their home was ransacked by two men.
Keri McMullen and Kurt Pendleton left a status update on Facebook Saturday night that said they wouldn’t be home because they were going to a concert in nearby Louisville at 8 p.m.
At 8:42 p.m., two burglars entered their house, using a screwdriver to force open a back door. However, luckily for McMullen and Pendleton, they had recently installed a surveillance system in their home. The cameras caught the entire episode on tape.
The video shows the two men going through McMullen’s purse, stealing electronics — more than $10,000 worth — including a plasma television right off the wall. The burglars are then seen driving away with a laundry basket filled with the stolen goods.
After posting images of the suspects on Facebook, McMullen realized one of them had “friended” her about six months ago. She says he grew up across the street from her and hasn’t seen him in more than 20 years.
On “The Early Show,” McMullen said after looking over that Facebook “friend”‘s page, she thought the man in the surveillance video was him.
“He has a twin if it’s not him,” she said.
She added the man hasn’t been positively identified by police yet, so she’s not 100 percent sure.
“Early Show” co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez added that if the surveillance camera hadn’t captured the burglary, this person wouldn’t have been suspected in a million years.
Saints, I do believe that soical networking is a good thing however in my opinion far too many people put to much personal business out for everyone to see!
