Facebook 'Friend' Robs Home Of Vacationing Family: Cops

Michael Batson (Fontana Police Dept.)

This story won’t get many “likes.”
A woman on vacation in Las Vegas had her house burglarized by a trio that allegedly included one of her Facebook “friends.”
Stacey Grant of Fontana, Calif., was so excited about her family’s spring break trip to Sin City that she posted lots of social media updates about her whereabouts.
One of her Facebook friends apparently really “liked” those updates.
Investigators say Michael Batson, 21, used Grant’ Facebook posts to case her home and, with the help of two other men, ransack it last Tuesday.
“It was hurtful,” Grant told KNBC-TV. “My whole room was trashed, there were clothes everywhere. My bed was gone.”
The alleged burglar even messaged Grant after her first Vegas post asking about her Vegas plans, according to her mom, Lavern Cheatheam.
