I always say that if you are going to go the risks to commit a crime of any type, you need to shut your mouth about it when talking to anyone.
However, the first thing that everyone seems to do when they have stolen something is talk about it. Look at what happens in scenes in movies after a robbery. People always get caught because they brag about it.
It takes a special kind of stupid to commit a felony and then brag about it on Facebook for everyone to see.
Especially when we see the same thing over and over again.
Alexandria “Ally” Lyons of Grand Rapids was arrested after she posted a video showing her allegedly goading other protesters to damage and loot buildings in Grand Rapids.
Someone must have reported her for what she posted and the police were able to track her down and make the arrest.
If found guilty on both counts she could be facing 15 years in prison.
Grand Rapids police Detective Matt DeJong wrote:
“Defendant could be heard telling her friends to get her a gold bracelet because she already has silver ones.”
“She is heard multiple times encouraging her friends and others to throw bricks or other objects at windows of multiple businesses downtown and at one point picks up a brick herself and mentions heading ‘back to the courthouse.’”
In one video, Lyons allegedly instructed her friends to break into an ATM.
Lyons shared footage of her having a party at her house, where she was reportedly seen wearing stolen clothing from F. David Barney Clothiers.
