Shelly Grant was off visiting her mother on Las Vegas when her home in California was broken into.

In astonishing luck, police officers happened to be surveilling the area at the time of the break in on Tuesday and were able to stop and arrest Grant’s acquaintance Michael Baston, 21, and two other men, Philip McKnight, 32, and Tyrone Gibson, 20…

Grant told NBC Los Angeles that she regularly shared her whereabouts with her Facebook friends and had excitedly written, ‘Just made it to Las Vegas with my family’ on Monday.

She said that Baston texted her asking how long her family was away for and how the trip was going, and she said that she innocently believed they were just catching up…

All three men were arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy, and the family returned from their trip immediately.
