Facebook pics lead deputies to stolen trucks, suspects

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Facebook pictures of a stolen truck led deputies to two suspects, and even more stolen goods Saturday in Harrison County.

Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said Jason Conaway, 35, and Brandi Paine, 30, posted pictures on Facebook of themselves with a truck that had been reported stolen from St. Tammany Parish, LA. Investigators tracked the pair down to a camper off Cemetery Road, which they said was also stolen. Deputies said they then discovered two additional stolen pickup trucks, which they have since learned were taken from Biloxi and Hancock County.

Both Conaway and Paine face multiple felony charges of receiving stolen property, and are being held under a $100,000 bond at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. Conaway also has a hold placed on him for St. Tammany Parish. He's charged in that jurisdiction with attempted theft of a motor vehicle after investigators say he was caught on surveillance video trying to steal another truck.
