Facebook Sales Post Leads to Twin Falls Man’s Arrest
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Police in south-central Idaho say a Facebook post offering tile and a glass panel for sale has led to theft charges. The Times-News reports that 28-year-old Jacob Ivan Rasmussen was charged Friday in 5th District Court with one count of grand theft by possession of stolen property. Authorities say that a home builder recognized the tile and $900 glass panel as stolen from a building site and notified police, who arranged to meet the person offering the items for sale.
Police say that person bought the items through an acquaintance, but provided information leading to Rasmussen. Police say they found the glass panel at Rasmussen's shop as well as other items police say were taken from construction sites.
