Another Facebook fool.
A Panama City Beach hotel reported the theft of $500 of Dom Perignon champagne in February after an inventory of supplies showed three bottles were missing, according to a news release from the Bay County Sheriff's Office.
The security cameras had been turned off at the time of the theft, according to a subsequent investigation.
However, an employee at the hotel discovered pictures on a Facebook page of a former night auditor and a friend holding Dom Perignon champagne bottles with the caption: “Hey, we’re having Dom in the morning!”
The hotel manager ID'd the man as Jonathon Appleby, a former night auditor at the hotel.
Appleby had access to the cooler with the champagne and to the security cameras while he was employed.an investigation determined.
When investigators tracked down the 24-year-old Panama City man, he reportedly told an investigator several different stories as he tried to explain how he came to possess the bottles of Dom Perignon.
Investigators arrested Appleby and charged him with Grand Theft.
