27-year-old mum Danielle Saxton was arrested for sharing Facebook photos of herself wearing a dress she had shoplifted mere hours earlier.

The pregnant woman then shared images of herself wearing the stolen item on her Facebook page, where the store soon noticed.

The shop owner, Kert Williams, made a plea in relation to the stolen goods on the shop’s Facebook page, where he was soon tipped off about Danielle’s new photos.

The shop owner then called police, who arrested Danielle at her home, Police Chief Shawn Talluto said: “We just had a description and a direction of travel, but when the social media aspect played into it, we were able to identify who it was … When you put something out there, it’s a matter of minutes before it can go viral, and it can go to the world.”
