GREAT FALLS, — A Great Falls family says they shouldn't have put their travel plans on a social networking site after returning from a 10-day vacation to find their home ransacked and burglarized.
Biff and Amy Larson tell KFBB-TV they shared on Facebook the day they were leaving and how many days they'd be gone celebrating their children's graduation.
The couple says before leaving they arranged for neighbors and friends to check on their home and made sure all their doors and windows were locked.
They say the burglary likely happened at night and thousands of dollars in belongings are missing.
Sgt. Bryan Slavik of the Great Falls Police Department says putting travel information on social networking sites is like advertising to criminals.
The Larsons say they have ordered a security system.
