Cake thief identified through Facebook
February 13, 2014
A Morro Bay man who snatched a chocolate cake from the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo was identified after the restaurant personnel placed a video of the theft on Facebook.
A Facebook user identified the cake thief as Shea Martin, and an officer went to Martin’s home to question him. However, martin fled out the back door.
Shortly afterwards, Martin called the San Luis Obispo Police Department and admitted the theft. He agreed to turn himself in, but never showed.
A few days later, an unidentified female went to the Madonna Inn and paid for the cake.
Nevertheless, the Madonna Inn wants Martin prosecuted for the burglary so the police department will be submitting this report to the District Attorney’s Office requesting a burglary charge.
