BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — Bremerton detectives used Facebook to nab a suspect in several robberies at Walgreens.

The Kitsap Sun reports that detectives knew they had their guy when the saw photos on his Facebook page of him wearing the same clothes he wore during the crimes.

During two robberies in 2012 and 2013, a man demanded prescription opiates from the pharmacy.

Authorities received a tip from someone at a Virginia jail about a possible suspect who was serving time for pharmacy robberies in Virginia.

When they scrolled through James Preston Driggers’ Facebook page, they found photos of him wearing a coat and sweatshirt that were seen in the surveillance photos.

Officials flew to Virginia and say Driggers confessed to the crimes.
