Misty Baker

An alleged thief at the Home Depot in Moses Lake dropped her cell phone during her escape.

Unfortunately for her, when police found it, it was conveniently open to her Facebook page.

Moses Lake Police Department are now looking for 33-year-old Misty Baker, who faces robbery charges for attempting to steal items from the store and a Class A felony for punching an employee in the face when confronted.

Police noted “Baker left the scene in an appropriately named Ford Escape.”

Officers were able to match her Facebook photo with security camera footage of the attempted theft.

She also is being sought on two other outstanding warrants.
