LAKE GENEVA—Posting a surveillance camera photo on Facebook helped Lake Geneva police identify and arrest a suspect in a string of purse thefts on Labor Day, according to a news release.

Danielle M. Zitzler, 29, 912 Badger Lane, Lake Geneva, stole purses from two Lake Geneva restaurants on Monday, police said.

Both restaurants had security cameras, and when police couldn't identify their suspect they turned to social media for help, authorities said, posting a photo on their Facebook page.

Residents called police and identified Zitzler as the woman in the photos, according to the release.

Police arrested Zitzler on Tuesday night and have referred charges of theft to the Walworth County District Attorney, authorities said.
