Don't be a crime bragger
http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/hit-and-run-driver-brags-on-twitter-185037059.html The drunk driver: Oregon teenager Jacob ****-Brown landed himself in the county jail after posting about his drunk-driving hit-and-run escapade on Facebook earlier this year. "Drivin drunk ... classsic but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P" was the early-morning post that quickly led to his at-home arrest, after Facebook friends alerted the local police department, who had already been looking into the mysterious hit-and-run of a parked car. The baby Jesus thief: A York, Pennsylvania juvenile (who has remained unnamed in the press) was charged with theft after stealing a baby Jesus statuette worth $400 from a neighbors front-lawn manger scene. The boys gaffe? Posting a photo of the swiped statuette on Facebook, where rightful owner Frank McKee spied it after combing through profiles of locals for clues. The school-bus bullies: Two J.W. Mitchell High School mean girls were arrested in Florida early this year after ganging up on 16-year-old Chase Christia on the school busone punching her repeatedly and the other filming the incident. The video wound up on Facebook, Christias mom alerted the police and the alleged attackers were arrested on misdemeanor charges. The jail escapee: U.K. fugitive Craig Lazie Lynch couldnt leave well enough alone after escaping a minimum security prison in Suffolk, where he was serving time for burglary. Nopehe famously ended a four-month manhunt in 2010 after taunting authorities by posting photos of himself on the run, including one in which hes holding a Christmas turkey and flipping the bird with the other. His antics, predictably, led to his recapture. But it also made him an Internet sensation briefly, attracting 40,000 fans to his Facebook page and spawning fansites, T-shirts and a tribute song, Not so Lazie. The copycat fugitive: Ruben J. Burgos, a Utica, New York man wanted for criminal contempt and aggravated harassment of his ex-girlfriend, decided to play a virtual game of cat-and-mouse with police in 2011. Perhaps inspired by Lazie Lynch, he posted "Catch me if you can. I'm in Brooklyn on his Facebook page, then upped the ante by shooting a video of himself walking into an NYPD station, and posting that, too. It didnt take authorities long to find him. "He told us via Facebook to come and get him and we did, Utica police Sgt. Steve Hauck told the New York Daily News at the time. The identity-thieving foodies: Nathaniel Troy Maye and Tiwanna Tenise Thomason pleaded guilty to identity theft in early May after they were busted trying to sell hundreds of thousands of stolen means of identification, meant to help prepare false tax returns, to a police informant during a meeting at a Mortons Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale. The informant then matched evidence containing Troy Mayes name with an Instagram photo of a Mortons mac-and-cheese meal hed snappedwhich just happened to have a time and date stamp that matched that of the threesomes steakhouse meeting. The match-up led to their arrests. The cyber stalker: After hacking into the email accounts of 19 women, stealing naked or partially nude photos of them and then hacking into their Facebook pages to post the images as their new profile photos, Joseph Bernard Campbell of Florida was caughtthrough Facebook, naturally. Campbell, who knew many of the women, pleaded guilty to federal charges of cyberstalking and unauthorized access to a computer in 2011.
