West Frankfort, Ill. – A woman is charged with theft after she posted photos of herself on Facebook wearing the dress she’s accused of stealing.

Police accuse 27-year-old Danielle Saxton of stealing a leopard-print dress from Mortie’s Boutique in West Frankfort earlier this month, along with some other items.

Hours after the alleged theft, police say Saxton posted multiple photos with the stolen items and they were able to track her down. When police showed up at her home, they say she still had some of the items in her hand.

She was also wanted on a warrant in Jackson County for missing a court appearance on felony drug charges. She will appear in court August 19 for a bond date hearing in Franklin County.
