Facebook has helped Ontario Police solve a crime. Comments posted on the social media website helped officers identify 24-year-old Brittany Freeman of Iberia in Marion County, as the person who stole two collection containers for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, from the counter of the Speedway gas station on West Fourth Street. Captain Dale Myers says Freeman asked the clerk to get something for her, leaving the counter unattended. She is seen on store surveillance video grabbing two containers filled with money and darting out the door. Myers says Facebook is proving itself to be a valuable crime-fighting tool. Freeman has sent Ontario Police a message through Facebook saying she will come in Monday to talk with detectives. She's likely to be slapped with a first-degree misdemeanor theft charge, and could face more charges for similar thefts at other Speedways in Richland County.
