Facebook Leads to Man’s Arrest


Cody J. Redenius of Dane County, Wisconsin was arrested (but not formally charged) for a photo that someone placed on Facebook. What was wrong with this photo and how did the police find out about it? Apparently, Cody has a domestic abuse restraining order that forbids him from possessing a firearm. Someone saw a photo of him holding a firearm and told his ex-girlfriend about the photo and she told the police. Deputies arrested Cody when they went to his house to investigate and found the loaded shotgun in his residence.Redenius, in his defense, told authorities that he wasn’t aware that he couldn’t possess a firearm.
