Deputies say a Facebook posting led to the arrest of a man accused of stealing hunting gear.

Jacob Shaw faces one count of felony theft by receiving stolen property worth more than $1,500.

The Buffalo County Sheriff's Office says Shaw stole duck and goose decoys and boats from a hunting cover near the city of Gibbon.

They say Shaw then posted photos of the equipment with his contact information on a Facebook exchange page.

Shaw is being held at the county jail. He is scheduled in court later this month.

Shaw's attorney says his client has no comment about the case.
