Arrests Made After Suspects Identified on Social Media

Press Release – April 15th, 2018, Patrol Division deputies responded and took reports from Dollar General Store and Holloway Outdoors in reference to theft from both locations.

The owner of Holloway Outdoors posted photos on social media of the suspects and they were quickly identified as 23 year old Haily Lynette Box of Pineville and 33 year old Benjamin Neal Aycock of Pineville.  The investigation was turned over to detectives at the Kolin Sub-station for further investigation and during their investigation, detectives were able to determine that the both suspects were identified on video at both businesses stealing items.  Detectives used this and other evidence to establish sufficient probable cause to obtain warrants for the arrest of Box and Aycock.
