The Spin: If proved to be true, this is an undoubtedly moving story, considering it was due to Rickly’s friends and fans that the thief was caught. It began when friends of the vocalist on Facebook received notifications of “him” joining Instagram, and then they reported the activity to authorities after realizing that his phone was stolen in this gunpoint robbery a few days ago. It’s invigorating to see a fan-base be so zealous that they would go to great lengths to ensure that justice will be served.
