FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.—Authorities in South Florida say a man is facing charges after he was seen in a photo on Facebook holding a judge's stolen nameplate.
Twenty-one-year-old Steven Mulhall was arrested Thursday on violation of probation charges.
Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel ( http://sunsent.nl/w4aQxO) Mulhall pried the $40 nameplate from the courtroom door of Broward Circuit Judge Michael Orlando. He says Mulhall has multiple petty theft convictions and now faces felony charges.
Arrest reports show the nameplate was stolen last month. Authorities received a tip that Mulhall took the nameplate and that the picture could be found on his girlfriend's Facebook page.
The nameplate will be returned to the judge.
