We have two more felons undone by social media habits. Logan Brooke Larrimore, 18, and Farren Marie Lane, 18, decided to break into a South Carolina water park and then posted pictures on Snapchat of themselves enjoying the slides and Italian ices. It did not take long for the police to track them down and they now facing felony charges.
Larrimore and Lane are charged with third-degree burglary after they admitted to jumping the fence at Myrtle Beach Waves Water Park around 4am Saturday. They also admitted to eating $8 worth of Italian ices. The amount of the ill-gotten goods is trivial but they are being charged over the break in. One of the people that they had on their Snapchat list turned them in.
While I would expect leniency in sentencing for first offenders, the law actually allows for a ten year sentence:
(A) A person is guilty of burglary in the third degree if the person enters a building without consent and with intent to commit a crime therein.(B) Burglary in the third degree is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than five years for conviction on a first offense and for not more than ten years for conviction of a second offense according to the discretion of the Court.
