Next time you tell your Facebook friends what you’re doing, you might want to be sure they are all your “friends.”
Tonight on Anderson Cooper 360° I’m going to share a story about a Facebook burglary that is sure to make you wonder.
Recently I visited Keri McMullen at her house in New Albany, Indiana. Keri had alerted her Facebook friends one night that she was headed out to see a band with her fiancé.
Turns out, one of her friends thought that was a good time to burglarize her home.
This guy and his accomplice apparently used the time well. They knew when the band was playing and when Keri might be home. They knew exactly how much time they had.
As luck would have it though, Keri and her fiancé, Kurt Pendleton, had just installed security cameras in their home so the whole burglary was caught on tape. They showed me the video. The burglars didn’t even know there were security cameras in the house. The video is unreal. It shows these guys pulling a 50 inch plasma TV right out of the wall. They also took jewelry, computers, etc.
Keri posted some of the shots from the security camera videotape on her Facebook page, and sure enough, another Facebook friend recognized one of the burglars. Turns out, Keri says, he was one of her childhood friends. His name is Shaun South, police say, and Keri says she’s known him since she was just seven.
You can watch the whole video tonight on Anderson Cooper 360°. It’s really creepy… plus we’ll show just how these guys pulled it off.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
