GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. -- A Gloversville store owner used Facebook to catch three shoplifters. The owner said last month, three teenagers walked out of Young's Variety Store on Main Street with items they did not pay for.
The owner of the store posted these surveillance photos of the alleged shoplifters on the store's Facebook page. Within hours, tips poured into the store's social media page.
Damian Roe, 17, Samantha Horning, 18, and Dana Horning, 17, turned themselves into police after hearing about the online photos.
All three were issued appearance tickets to appear in Gloversville court at a later date.
