Maintenance Worker Used Instagram to Target Women for Robberies

In Orange County, a maintenance worker was caught with using social media to track dozens of college women in order to rob their homes and sorority houses.

The Orange County Register says Arturo Galvan of Menifee appeared in court on Tuesday. He has pleaded not guilty to burglary and remains jailed. Galvan reportedly targeted at least 33 women and stole more than $250,000 worth of items.

Fullerton police say Galvan would spot women in public places such as coffee shops or malls and then try to track their locations through Instagram. Police say that Galvan would then get their home addresses through geotagged photos.

Stolen items include jewelry, laptops and underwear. The women were students at Chapman University and California State University, Fullerton.
