The Grant County Sheriff's Department arrested 27-year-old Luis Hernandez Santa Cruz on New Year's Eve, thanks to some armchair detectives who recognized his profile picture on Facebook and called in the tip to the cops!

****Note to would-be burglars: Cameras are everywhere these days and anyone can see your profile on social media.

The Sheriff's Department believes the suspect is connected to several crimes in the Moses Lake area.
