WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) — Florida police say a suspect in a theft at a Wal-Mart identified herself on Facebook after seeing a post offering a reward.
Winter Haven Police posted a video Thursday on Facebook showing a couple pushing a cart out of the store April 7. Police said they hadn’t paid for their items.
The post offered a potential reward to tipsters. Ninety minutes later, 29-year-old Elaina West of Lake Wales left a comment identifying herself in the video.
West wrote: “Ain’t no reward I’m coming in.”
Police said West surrendered late Thursday.
She was held Sunday at the Polk County jail on $1,000 bond for grand theft. Her husband, 30-year-old Patrick West, was held on $8,500 bond for grand theft and drug charges. Jail records didn’t show whether either had an attorney.
