Facebook helps police catch bandits

(ST. CLAIR COUNTY) -- The use of social media assisted in the arrest of two suspects believed to be involved in several home invasions in the Columbus, Casco, and St. Clair Township areas over the past two months. Detectives from the St. Clair County Sheriff's Office posted a photo taken by a surveillance camera of one of the suspects on the department's Facebook page. Several citizens contacted the Detective Bureau with information regarding the possible identity of the man in the picture. Further investigation led to the arrest Wednesday afternoon of a 29-year old man and a 35-year old woman, both from Clay Township. They face charges of home invasion pending arraignment Friday.
