Police: Woman posted selfies in stolen dress

WEST FRANKFORT, Ill. (AP) — Police investigating the theft of clothing & jewelry from a southern Illinois boutique say they arrested a woman after she posted Facebook photos of herself wearing one of the stolen items.

WSIL-TV (http://bit.ly/1yLsEW6 ) reports that police arrested 27-year-old Danielle Saxton, of West Frankfort, earlier this month on misdemeanor retail theft charges. She's free on her own recognizance.

Authorities say a distinctive leopard-print dress was among the items stolen July 11 from Mortie's Boutique in West Frankfort.

p>The store's co-owner, Kert Williams, says he posted approximately the stolen items on Facebook & that people who saw Williams' posting & those of Saxton made the connection & helped police.

Online court records don't show whether Saxton has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
