Facebook Group Leads To Stolen Car Recovery
When you think about Facebook applications, chances are the first things that come to mind are along the lines of Farmville and Mafia Wars, but how about crime solver?
On Tuesday, University of Florida student Jonathan Pavlinec started a Facebook group asking people to look for his stolen car. It was stolen from his southwest Gainesville apartment complex sometime between late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Less than 48 hours after the Facebook group was created, a Facebook friend spotted the car.
