Hodnett Cooper’s Receptionist Uses Facebook to Solve a Local Crime

Al Chapman came home to the unpleasant site of broken car windows last week. Someone vandalized two of his work trucks, stealing his radio, gps system, and other personal belongings.

Al immediately called his wife Mary Chapman, Hodnett Cooper’s Island Office Receptionist, to share the bad news. She, along with neighbors got to work spreading the news of the break-in via Facebook. Mary told one friend, who told another, who told another, and the word multiplied!

Not long after posting to Facebook, Mary had a solid lead – a suspicious individual was seen by another neighbor leaving the area surrounding Mary’s house. Mary notified the police, and they quickly followed up on the Facebook lead.  By day’s end, the police had located the thief and their belongings. News article.
