(WSILTV) — FRANKLIN COUNTY-- A West Frankfort woman's Facebook posts landed her in jail.
Police say 27-year-old Danielle Saxton stole from a downtown boutique last week. Then, she posted pictures of herself wearing the merchandise. Investigators say Saxton shared the pics just a few hours after the theft. The images quickly spread on Facebook, and led officers straight to her.

“What she stole was a very distinct leopard dress,” store co-owner Kert Williams explained.
Police say the pictures are evidence of shoplifting committed by Saxton. The theft happened at Mortie's Boutique in West Frankfort, where multiple items disappeared last Friday.
