SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities arrested four burglary suspects after investigators found a photograph posted online of $120 worth of food from a fast food restaurant that was purchased with a stolen credit card.
The Sacramento Bee reports the four — three adults and a juvenile — allegedly broke into vehicles Sunday in Rocklin, swiping wallets and other items.
One of the burglary victims learned her credit card had been used at a nearby Carl's Jr. restaurant to pay for $120 worth of food at the drive-through window.
Police were led to the suspects after one of the suspects posted a photo to Instagram, of the large amount of food they had purchased.
A Carl's Jr. employee also posted a photo to Instagram, of the lengthy $120 receipt. Another employee grew suspicious and took down the suspects' license plate number.
