GAINESVILLE, Ga -- If you are going to commit a crime, you might not want to post video of yourself committing that crime on social media. That's what some suspects in Gainesville did this past Christmas Eve, gift-wrapping an arrest for police.
It couldn’t have been more convenient, according to Sgt. Kevin Holbrook. “We were given a gift from a citizen here in Gainesville,” he said. “They practically wrapped it, delivered it, and sealed it for us.”
The citizen, who is not being identified, told police they saw some very disturbing photos and videos on the social media app Snapchat. Police were surprised at what they saw several people doing in the video. “They were displaying firearms, displaying drugs so that all could see,” Sgt. Holbrook said. “They were definitely showing off as if they had no worries who even saw it.”
