Facebook is being credited with helping police identify two alleged armed robbery suspects who struck at a home in Bethany on Monday.

Police were called out to investigate at the home, located in the 6800 block of NW 30th St. Two victims and three witnesses were at the home at the time of the robbery. The victims told police the suspects held them at gunpoint and took their cash.

One victim told police that one suspect went by the name “Ciarra” and the other was her boyfriend. A witness told police the boyfriend’s name was “Callico” or “Marco”. One of the victims told police that he knew the suspects but did not know their full names.

Police later spoke with two of the witnesses, one of whom told them that “Ciarra” lived at Willow Cliff apartments. Investigators did some digging on social media, and when shown Facebook photos of two people believed might be involved, the witnesses positively identified the pair as Ciarra La’Shaee and Marco Butterfield.

So far, neither suspect is in custody. If you have any information about their whereabouts, contact police immediately. Photos of the suspects have not been released at this time.
