Deputies in Jones County, Mississippi got some help on an arrest, thanks to Facebook.

When dispatched to a burglary call at Farris Manufactured Homes on Highway 28 in Jones County on October 26th, deputies found two manufactured homes burglarized. In one of the homes it was discovered that a refrigerator had been stolen, according to WDAM.

While investigators were processing the scene, a deputy on patrol stopped a vehicle that was hauling a refrigerator that matched the stolen property description.

Upon questioning the suspect, deputies discovered that he had purchased it from 32-year-old Dantel While of Laurel via Facebook about 30 minutes prior.
