HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- A Facebook profile picture led to the arrest of a Harrisonburg city teenager Monday.

Police charged 19-year-old Truth Haliburton with felony possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and felony obstruction of justice.

According to court documents, Haliburton posted a photograph of himself holding two 30-round magazines, including one that has a bullet at the top of it. The documents also state that Haliburton recently made Twitter comments about the magazines.

Investigators with the CHARGE Gang Task Force searched his Commerce Drive home last week.

Haliburton has three felony convictions, including one when he was a juvenile. He was convicted of felony gang participation back in September.

By law, Haliburton is not allowed to possess firearms or ammunition.

He's scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 27 for a preliminary hearing.
