Facebook police: taking down criminals

In Medina, Ohio, the police department is now developing their own long list of Facebook friends.

Officer Sara Lynn is the department's Facebook webmaster.

She has lots of pictures to share.

No vacation pictures here, these are all mug shots.

Everybody featured is wanted by the Medina Police Department.

Lynn says the social networking site is a valuable law enforcement tool.

"I'm a big Facebook fan myself and I thought it was a great idea. And it's not only to talk about the warrants. It's about getting out any sort of information."

Lucas Stewart's picture was featured on Medina's wanted Facebook page.

He was arrested over the weekend.



Medina Police Chief Patrick Berarducci, "If you can get on the internet, you can get on our page and view all the people wanted by the Medina Police Department."

Right now they have 115 pictures to share with you.

All it takes is one phone call tip to get the picture removed.
