LOGAN, UTAH – September 2, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Logan City Police said it only took seven minutes of posting photos of three individuals wanted in connection with a current fraud case, for the public to identify them.
Logan City Police Detective Cody Olsen said the trio legally purchased a TV and took it home then went back to the store with the same receipt and said they had left the item there to go get a truck. “The employees then helped the couple to leave the store with a second TV they did not actually purchase,” said Olsen. “Through conversations, the employees realized something didn’t seem right and after going through the surveillance footage, they were able to determine the couple had already left with the first TV so they contacted our department.”
Detective Olsen said the use of social media has been great to help identify suspects much faster than in the past. “We definitely set a record with the fast response from the community and we are grateful for their help,” said Olsen
