SOMERS, N.Y. -- An anonymous Facebook tipster helped State Police identify a suspect wanted in connection with a pizzeria burglary in Somers back in August, officials said.
The two suspects gained access to the Peppino's pizza shop on Route 6 on the border of Somers and Mahopac and allegedly stole cash and a debit card that was later used to make a purchase at the Westchester Mall in White Plains, officials said.
Authorities posted surveillance footage of the two suspects using the debit card onto Facebook and soon an anonymous follower identified one of the suspects as Blerim Behluli, 24, of the Bronx, police said.
Behluli was charged with fourth degree criminal possession of stolen property. His alleged accomplice, Xhem Hoti, 25, of Mahopac, was later identified and arraigned on the same charge, police said.
