Facebook photo helps Washington deputies ID robbery suspect

A Washington state man was arrested Monday in a string of crimes after investigators said they identified him through his Facebook profile picture.

Grant County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday that 27-year-old Luis Hernandez Santa Cruz was arrested on suspicion of at least two burglaries and robbery after deputies were able to track him down using Facebook.

The investigators said they associated the crimes with the name Luis and an anonymous tip led them to a profile on the social media platform that seemed to match video surveillance of a suspect from one of the burglarized homes.
