Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 13-Oct-2011

San Antonio Police have announced their use of social media websites as a tool for searching for criminals, according to WOAI.

According to SAPD Officer Michael Porter, a suspect police has been searching for across a span of weeks, before locating his whereabouts through his posts on Facebook.

“On his Facebook page, he posted that he was throwing himself a birthday party at a particular nightclub,” Porter said.

Porter noted that detectives gave the information posted on the man’s facebook page to police on the street, who followed up on the lead and arrested the suspect.
