Suspect in Mac's robbery allegedly boasts about crime on Facebook

By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com

Posting on Facebook that you’ve just robbed a convenience store isn’t the brightest idea in the world.

But apparently that’s just what one alleged crook did after a Mac’s Convenience store on Simpson Street was robbed.

Police, acting on a tip, obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence, seized evidence and asked for an arrest warrant as the suspect was not at home at the time.

Nineteen-year-old Travis Jacob Loon turned himself into police on Sunday morning. He’s been charged with robbery, possession of a prohibited weapon and two counts of breach of probation.

Loon has been remanded to the district jail after a court appearance on Monday. None of the allegations have been proven in a court of law.
