Man arrested after being identified through Facebook photo

On Monday, Grant County sheriff’s deputies arrested 27-year-old Luis Hernandez Santa Cruz of Moses Lake on suspicion of at least two burglaries and a robbery in the Larson-North Moses Lake community.

Santa Cruz came to the attention of deputies when the name Luis was associated with the crimes.

Deputies then took to social media after a tip that his Facebook profile photo closely matched images caught on a surveillance camera at a burglarized home.

Further investigation connected Santa Cruz to additional unsolved crimes and he was arrested Monday morning.

He is currently being held in the Grant County Jail on suspicion of burglary and robbery.
