Phone linked to Facebook leads to burglary suspect

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - October 11, 2011

A local television station reports that Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies used the Facebook app to find and arrest 24-year-old Oscar Martinez last week. Deputies say they found his cell phone at the scene of the break-in.

The criminal complaint says a family interrupted the burglary when they came home and found Martinez, who fired six shots from a BB gun at them as he fled.

He is facing charges including aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon and violation of his parole.

It was unclear if Martinez has hired an attorney.
