Woman Uses Facebook To Identify Man Who Robbed Her During Pizza Delivery

A woman on Chicago's West Side intrepidly used Facebook to identify the man who stole a "football sized pizza" and $13 during a pizza delivery armed robbery.

According to CBS Chicago, suspect Jamokae Smith allegedly wielded "a blue steel revolver" (we're assuming that's not a Zoolander reference) as the victim and her boyfriend were delivering a pizza.

Smith then allegedly made off with the pizza and cash. According to the Sun-Times, "Prosecutors said Smith used his own phone to place the order and that the woman tracked him down online using the number."

The woman, who was not identified, used Facebook to search for images of Smith. She and her boyfriend both identified Smith to authorities, who then arrested and charged him on Thanksgiving day. CBS Chicago reported that "Smith was ordered held in lieu of $250,000 bail Saturday for aggravated robbery with a firearm and aggravated robbery."
