Facebook post blamed for break-in at family home
A Kamloops, B.C., woman is warning people about sharing too much information on Facebook, after she posted plans to leave town and thieves cleaned out her family's home.
Gina Taylor posted a note on the social media site last Friday saying she and her family were going to Vancouver for the Canucks game.
On Saturday afternoon, someone broke into her home and cleaned the family out. The thieves even found keys to an extra vehicle, loaded it up with everything of value and drove away.
"They took all of our TVs, our computers, our electronic, a lot of jeans, hats, all of our groceries," she said.
A neighbour saw it all going down, but assumed it was the family moving out.
Taylor believes her post on Facebook led to the break-in, and is now warning others about the risks of sharing personal plans online.
The family had no insurance for the $20,000 worth of stolen belongings, but she says they are getting help from family and friends.
