A man has turned himself in after MacKay's Real Estate in Wolfville posted a surveillance video of some recent vandalism to it's Facebook page.
The video taken over the early morning hours of Friday showed a man and a woman, wearing only tank tops, walking west along the street after the man broke a large plate glass window in the office with a swift punch.
The six-second video, which got over 18,000 hits in just 12 hours, has since been removed from the company's Facebook site.
Police and John MacKay, the proprietor of the real estate office, say they're impressed with the role social media can play in crime solving.
However, Mackay says the incident is typical of the sort of vandalism downtown business owners regularly endure.

A new residential development proposal for downtown Halifax is heading to the city's design review committee next week, but could be shot down because it’s too tall.
Landmark Developments wants to construct an eight-storey building called Artillery Place, but under HRM by Design the area is limited to 16 metres, or roughly four storeys.
The development is proposed for the site bounded by Queen Street, Dresden Row and Artillery Place.
The concept drawings show a building with close to 30 apartment or condo units and two commercial spaces on the ground floor. It also includes a small public space along Queen Street.

A new study by Dalhousie University and University of Waterloo researchers is linking the consumption of high-caffeine energy drinks to substance abuse and mental health issues among high school students.
Over 8,200 high school students around Atlantic Canada were surveyed and about two-thirds of them said they had consumed an energy drink in the previous year. The findings have prompted the researchers to call for the government to reduce the amount of caffeine allowed in energy drinks.
