Home invaded after Facebook post

POLICE are urging people to be more cautious about what they post online, after a picture on Facebook sparked a home invasion in the New South Wales southern highlands last week.

A 17-year-old girl was helping her grandmother count personal belongings in her Sydney home last Thursday, when she posted a picture of a large sum of cash on her Facebook profile.

At about 11:30pm, two men armed with a knife and a wooden club allegedly went to the girl's mother's house in Bundanoon.

A 47-year-old woman, a 58-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were at home at the time.

The robbers demanded to speak to the teen about the money, but her mother told them she no longer lived there.
