Facebook messages link man to burglary

BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

If you're going to commit a crime, it's probably not a good idea to talk about it on Facebook.

But police say that's exactly what 22-year-old Logan Finn of Bay City did.

Now, Finn is charged with home invasion and conspiracy. Finn is accused of breaking into a man's Bay City apartment Aug. 23 and stealing a Playstation and more than $150.

According to the Bay City Times, a friend then gave the victim private messages between Finn and a woman the victim knew.

One message tells Finn the victim will be out of town and that he leaves his wallet at home. Finn replies that even if the wallet isn't there, he'll be able to find something valuable.

Finn was arraigned Wednesday and faces a court hearing Oct. 24.

At last word, there was a warrant out for his alleged accomplice.
