Facebook Post Helps Catch Suspected Thief


A Facebook post led police to the man suspected of stealing some hunting gear from a hunting cover in Buffalo County.

Jacob Shaw has been charged with one count of felony theft for allegedly stealing the hunting gear. The Buffalo County Sheriff's Office says Shaw stole duck and goose decoys and boats from a hunting blind near Gibbon.

Police were led to Shaw when they saw pictures posted on the Kearney Area Exchange Group on Facebook with Shaw's contact information listed.

Shaw was taken to the Buffalo County Jail.
