Burglar arrested after posting photo on Facebook with stolen clothes: MPD

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police have arrested a suspect they believe is part of a group of men who broke into two businesses in Whitehaven in one week.

Last week, video surveillance captured Donya Webb and several others were filmed entering the mall with crowbars before stealing merchandise from Lavish Boutique on Elvis Presley.

Police say the men also broke into Domino’s Pizza. Although nothing was stolen, the pizzeria manager said the store was vandalized.

On Sunday, investigators were notified that Webb was involved in the burglary. Webb was also seen on his Facebook account wearing clothes similar to those stolen from the store.

Shop owner Lawanda Thorton later confirmed that the clothes were from her store. Thorton also told police the thieves stole $40,000 worth of merchandise.

When officers arrived at Webb’s residence to conduct a search, they found clothing inside the house with Lavish Boutique tags still attached.

Webb was charged with two counts of building burglary and theft of property.
