Facebook Denies Involvement in $200,000 Worth of New Hampshire Burglaries | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

Apparently more to the story

However, if this story sounds almost too fortuitous on behalf of the accused, it might very well be. For starters, Facebook itself is denying that there's any connection between said burglaries and the social networking platform.

"We've been in contact with the Nashua police, and they confirmed that they while they have an ongoing investigation and have already made a number of arrests, the only Facebook link was that one of those arrested had a Facebook friend who posted about leaving town in the near future (which is why they believe that home was targeted) and it had nothing to do with Facebook Places," said a Facebook spokesman in an email interview with Cnet's Caroline McCarthy.

"The police confirmed that the other burglaries had nothing to do with Facebook altogether," he added.
