NEWTOWN TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) – Police in Bucks County allege a man used a friend’s posting on Facebook about going on vacation as an opportunity to steal valuables from the victim’s home.

When a Facebook friend indicated that he was on vacation, Newtown Township Police say Steve Piecznyski, 36, stole jewelry, coins and 120 DVD’s from a home on Robin Road in Wrightstown Township in late September.

Investigators say a neighbor of the victims wrote down a license plate of a suspicious car in the neighborhood and that car was later traced to Piecznyski.

According to investigators, they later realized that Piecznyski and the victim were friends on Facebook. Piecznyski was arrested on October 20th.

Piecznyski’s lawyer maintains his client’s innocence.

“Steve is innocent. He’s a hard-working family man. He’s very upset about this allegation, in particular because he is innocent,” lawyer Andrew Schneider said.

Following his arrest, Piecznyski is out on $2,500 bail.

Police say they have recovered some of the stolen items.
