The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says two suspects in a home burglary had clicked "Like" on a surveillance photo of an accomplice posted on the sheriff's office's Facebook page.

The office had posted a surveillance photo of a person walking into a store with credit cards stolen from a Town of Lakeside residence in late June.  The investigation led to the arrest of the 32-year-old woman, who allegedly implicated her 26-year-old boyfriend in her confession.

The two are scheduled to make preliminary court appearances next week.

Authorities believe the man seen in the surveillance photo fled the area after seeing his photo on Facebook.  The sheriff's office says he is not a suspect, but investigators would like to speak to him.
