Sheriff’s Office Uses Facebook to Catch Suspected Burglars


In Oklahoma, Facebook helps deputies track down three suspected burglars.

The LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office reached out through social media after two well-known people in the Heavener and Howe areas were robbed.

Investigators say they got a tip leading them to three suspects and found guns, ATVs, computers and more. Bradley Steelman, Levi Poor and Willie Farthing were arrested in connection with the crimes.

LeFlore County under-sheriff Kendall Morgan says they’re accused of taking advantage of vulnerable victims.

“One family that was broken into has an illness in their family right now, I believe these people knew they were gone,” he said. “The other was an elderly couple, they were going to church.”

Deputies are still searching for more of the stolen goods.
