Facebook Leads to Arrest
(Polk County, FL) -- A Polk County man is in a jail cell after stealing a bottle of liquor and posting it on Facebook. According to the Sheriff's Office, Cameron Gore was taken into custody earlier this week after a theft was reported at a Lakeland pizza restaurant. Deputies say Gore wore the same shirt used in the robbery and showed the stolen liquor bottle. The caption says "never gonna go back" to jail, but that is exactly where he went on three counts of burglary and theft. Criminals are not the brightest on the planet...just saying!
