A 17-year-old girl posted a photo of a large sum of cash on Facebook. Hours later a gang of masked men, armed with knives and clubs, broke into the home of the girl’s mother in the country town of Bundanoon, south-eastern Australia.
According to the police, the thieves, who had probably “liked” the picture on Facebook, came to the house of the girl’s mother.
They wore dark-colored clothing, gloves and had their faces covered. They said they wanted to speak to the girl about the cash on her Facebook page.
But the girl’s mother told them they had broken into the wrong house.
The girl was not living with her mother. She had taken the photo at her grandmother’s house in Sydney the same day.
The girl posted on her Facebook page, a picture of a “large sum of cash” she had helped her 72-year-old grandmother count in her home in Sydney, 120 kilometers (75 miles) north-east of Bundanoon.
The Australian reports the men, unwilling to believe the girl’s mother, searched the house and took some cash and a few personal belongings before they left.
