A 23-year-old Arkansas woman accused of fraudulent use of a credit card and theft by receiving was caught after police found her through her own Instagram post, authorities said.

Autumn Partington was accused of stealing credit card information while working as a waitress at Angel’s Restaurant, 600 Central Ave., in Hot Springs, according to a news release from the city's Police Department. The department reportedly included her on its Warrant Wednesday Facebook series in early January.

After an investigation, it was determined that Partington had fled the Hot Springs area, police said.

But she later posted a photo of her herself on her Instagram account with the caption, “i luv my job” wearing an apron, the release states. Luckily, police said, the name of the business — a Cabot location — was visible on her apron.

Authorities contacted the Cabot Police Department, and Partington was arrested at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. She remained at the Garland County jail as of of Friday afternoon in lieu of $6,500 bond, records show, and has a court appearance scheduled for Monday.
