After a man saw things that had been stolen from him posted for sale on Facebook Marketplace, police arrested a 40-year-old man for burglary Monday.
A Spokane police officer was flagged down by the victim of a residential burglary on the 2000 block of West Pacific Avenue around 9 a.m., according to a police statement.
The victim said he had found several of his stolen items posted for sale on Facebook. He showed photographs of the items to police and explained he had messaged the seller and likely thief to ask if the items were still for sale.
Police set up a meeting with the Facebook seller at a local grocery store. There, officers saw Douglas L. Enos trying to leave the meeting place.
Police say stolen goods were visible in Enos’ vehicle and that he admitted to the burglary.
Enos was booked into Spokane County Jail for residential burglary.
