Cops: Burglars showed off loot on Facebook

PITTSBURGH -- An 18-year-old Pittsburgh man is accused of burglarizing a market with three teens, then posting pictures on his Facebook page that showed the suspects mugging with some of the loot.

Isaiah Cutler has been jailed since Friday in the Dec. 12 burglary. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.

Police say Cutler, a 17-year-old and two 14-year-olds stole more than $8,000 worth of cash, cigarettes, candy and checks from the business.

About an hour later, police say, Cutler posted pictures of the teens posing with the loot on his page on the social networking site.

The younger suspects have been charged in juvenile court and been released to their parents.

Cutler faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on charges of theft, burglary and conspiracy. -- AP
