Waterloo business uses Facebook to find thief

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Waterloo business took to Facebook this weekend after they say a man stole something from their store.

An employee at Hank's Live Bait and Tackle says a man bought a few things and on his way out stole a $10 item. The employee says the man did it while he and another employee were watching.

The whole thing was caught on surveillance video, so the business posted a photo of the man on Facebook, and soon they found the thief.

Waterloo Police say a report was filed, but Hank's Live Bait and Tackle have not pressed any charges. The man who stole the item is now banned from the store, according to police. 

The Facebook post has been shared more than 300 times. Employees say the post ultimately helped them track down the thief.
