It’s summertime, so why not think of something fun and different to do and then share it! Yes, after the suspects committed the crime, they did what suspects do best nowadays, which is, confess their crimes with all sorts of pictures and evidence for social media. That is how El Paso PD was made aware of the crime. El Paso PD says all of the stolen lightbulbs have been recovered.
