Girl Finds Out That Stolen Items and Selfies Are a Terrible Combination

Pin It
This girl LOVED her new dress. She loved it so much, in fact, that she couldn't resist snapping a selfie and posting it on Facebook. Turns out, she might be wearing her dress in her mugshot, too, because the dress was hot...and we're not talking about the way she looked in it.

The item was reportedly stolen on July 11 from a boutique in Illinois. The store's co-owner told WSIL-TV that he posted about the stolen item on her Facebook page and since it all went down in a small town, it didn't take long before people saw this girl's selfie and made the connection.

Fortunately, it wasn't just your average LBD, so the distinctive pattern worked to the crime-stoppers' advantage.

The 27-year-old was arrested on misdemeanor retail theft charges and was released on her own recognizance. Hopefully she'll learn to make better choices - in life and in fashion.
