A ‘Liked’ Photo on Facebook Leads Greeley Man to His Stolen Truck
This is truly kismet -- or, just another case of 'shouldn't have posted that online.' Either way, a 'liked' photo on Facebook helped a local man find his truck in Windsor two years after it was stolen.
There are so many things flooding our Facebook newsfeed every single day, but one photo in particular caught the attention of Greeley resident Marvin Trevizo. Here's the gist of it.
According to ARS Technica, Trevizo's 2003 Ford F-150 was reported stolen to Greeley Police back in 2015. Two years went by without ever finding the truck, until last September, that is. Trevizo came across a photo 'liked' by one of his Facebook friends -- one of a man pictured with a very familiar (dented) 2003 Ford F-150.
Based on the pic, Trevizo was actually able to locate the truck in Windsor. He reported what he found to the police, who confirmed it was, in fact, Trevizo's stolen Ford.
Greeley Tribune and Windsor Now! report that 20-year-old Gustavo Almanza-Pena of Windsor is now facing felony theft charges. You can read the full report here.
This story definitely gets a 'thumbs up.'
