Copper Thief Identified and Arrested Thanks to Facebook

Within one hour of the Richmond Police Department posting a surveillance image on its Facebook page Monday, a Facebook fan called detectives and identified a person of interest in the theft of several copper planters.

The next day, the man—Brandon R. Slaughter, 26, of Glen Allen—surrendered to police and was charged with grand larceny in connection with the theft of several copper planters from the Jefferson Hotel at 101 W. Franklin St. last week. His mugshot is below.


Detectives would like to thank the community, and especially our Facebook fans, who immediately called in several tips that identified Slaughter. Though the Department has received several crime tips via Facebook previously, this is the first time detectives are aware of a direct link between a post and an arrest.
