Anderson, SC-- Investigators say a woman and a man broke into the homes of her Facebook friends after finding out they were out of town by their posts on the social networking site.

Deputies say 39-year-old Candace Landreth and 44-year-old Robert Landreth Jr. burglarized several Anderson County homes over the past two months.

And how do you catch alleged thieves? Investigators said they  turned the tables on the couple and used social media to arrest them. 

The sheriff's office posted on their Facebook surveillance photos  of the couple selling stolen merchandise at a Greenville video game store.

Both are being held at the Anderson County jail.
