Police in Rosenberg,Texas Nab Brother Burglars Thanks to Facebook

Police Department Gets Cheered by Public

policePolice in Rosenberg, Texas, nabbed two brothers for burglary thanks to the wide reach of Facebook.

Damian and Rolando Lozano were suspected of 17 car break-ins in one area Sunday, Nov. 17. Damian was arrested but Rolando was still on the loose.

When the Rosenberg Police Department couldn’t find Rolando, they posted photos of the two brothers on Facebook page, reaching out to the public about Rolando and asking anyone to contact their police department if they saw Rolando.

Who replied to that Facebook post? None other than Rolando Lozano himself. He reportedly replied: “f**k all yall hoes, im innocent, catch me if you can muthasuckas.” Within five minutes of Rolando’s post, the Rosenberg police caught him at a relative’s home.

Shortly after Rolando’s arrest, the Rosenberg Police Department replied to Rolando’s reply, saying, “Rolando Lozano…we caught you five minutes after you posted this… Thank you to the community for your help!!!” Not only that, but they posted a snapshot of Rolando’s arrest.

Naked Security, a computer security website from Sophos, says the Rosenberg Police Department “has the best Facebook page I’ve ever seen,” calling them “a cheery bunch.” One look at their page definitely shows they have a sense of humor—and heart. In one post, the police department posted a photo of an elderly man taking his elderly female dog for a walk in a wheelchair because she couldn’t walk anymore. Can we all saw, Awww?
