Friends Rob Friends, Then Post Facebook Update of Whereabouts

A woman accused of burglary and kidnapping was arrested Sunday after one of her victims saw on a Facebook update that the suspect would be at a Phoenix restaurant.

Brandi Lynn Rogers, 37, was arrested Sunday and charged with armed robbery, burglary and kidnapping. One of her accomplices led police right to her by revealing on Facebook which restaurant she'd be dining at that day.

On June 28, Rogers and three other accomplices had robbed two of her friends at gunpoint.

Rogers and a male acquaintance had been hanging out at the home of two of her friends, Amanda and Jeffrey Carlson, during the early hours of that morning, records say.
