BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Would you rather go to jail or confess to your crime on Facebook Live? That’s what an accused thief had to choose between after a Cocoa shop owner said he caught him in the act of stealing.
Bohemian Lair owner Bo Larsen said in his Facebook Live video posted Monday, Tyler Stanley stole from his smoke shop in Cocoa Village at the same time he applied for a job.
“My name is Tyler Stanley and I made the biggest mistake of my life,” Stanley said during his live-streamed public apology. “I could have had a great job.”
The four-minute Facebook Live confession was shared hundreds of times before Larsen deleted the video Tuesday.
“You’ve got a 100 people watching you right now,” Larsen said to Stanley.
