WATERBURY, Conn. — Police in Waterbury are now using Facebook; not for talking to friends or catching up on the latest trends, but to help solve crimes.

"We've received emails and tips since this has been out," Detective Peter Morgan told Eyewitness News. "That helped us identify at least one of the individuals."

Detective Morgan is working leads on Facebook. The department started using its 'Like' page to post evidence to generate leads.
