Facebook Posts Lead to Arrests of Suspects in $62K Bank Robbery


It took a tip to authorities to focus attention on two 19-year-old tellers after a March 23 bank robbery in Houston committed by armed, masked suspects.

But with the help of incriminating Facebook posts by Estefany Martinez and her boyfriend, four defendants including the pair, another teller at the International Bank of Commerce and a relative, have been arrested, reports the Houston Chronicle.

“I’ve always heard that you shouldn’t post pictures of yourself on Facebook smoking pot or drinking because employers are now looking at Facebook pages,” attorney Richard Kuniansky, who represents Martinez, tells the newspaper. “But I never knew there should be a warning not to post about a bank robbery that’s been committed.”
