Police use Facebook to nab 3 home invasion suspects

DOVER, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police have arrested three men in connection with a Dover Township home invasion last week.

Northern York County Regional police said they arrested 20-year-old Omar Finley, 19-year-old Devoid Williams IV and 17-year-old Justin Alexander Martinez, who was charged as an adult.

Lieutenant David Lash said detectives were led to Finley after he posted a picture of himself with a stolen iPhone on his Facebook page.

"We use Facebook in a lot of investigations, especially among the younger generation," Lash said. "The guys are all in their late teens and early 20s, they like to show off their exploits on Facebook."

All three face charges including robbery, criminal conspiracy, burglary, simple assault and criminal trespass.

Finley, Martinez and Williams were arraigned and committed to York County Prison on $1 million bail.

Police are still investigating the incident. Anyone with information may contact police at 292-3647.
