Facebook used to ID Land O' Lakes man in shoplifting case

A Land O' Lakes man accused of stealing from Walgreens was arrested Friday after he was identified through his Facebook page. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says Joshua Parsons, 22, of 7224 Decision Road, was in Walgreens at 7827 Land O' Lakes Blvd. when an employee saw him enter a restroom just before 5 p.m. Friday carrying a Sony music docking station. The employee told deputies Parsons exited the bathroom without the box. The employee found the empty box in the bathroom. The store's manager reviewed the security system and identified Parsons through his Facebook page.
Parsons, who was on probation for grand theft, was arrested three hours later at his home and charged with retail theft. Parsons was at Land O' Lakes Jail on Tuesday with no bail set.
