Friday Funny News – dumb criminal
Now “Americas dumbest criminals” makes me cringe and the terrible and self righteous police on shows like “police, camera, action” and “road wars” (“look what the silly mug does now”) make me ashamed not to be on the side of the law breakers, but I couldn’t resist this little story of a silly crime-inal.
Jonathan G. Parker, 19, of Fort Loudoun, Pennsylvania, USA, was captured after allegedly robbing a house when he used a PC in the house to look at his own Facebook profile.
Parker was charged with daytime burglary after forgetting to log out of his profile on the social networking site after stealing 2 diamond rings.
The alleged victim reported the crime to the police before noticing that her computer had been used and that the Facebook profile was still open.
During the investigation, the victim was told by a friend that the suspected criminal was staying in the same area.
When police visited that home, an acquaintance said that Parker did not live at the address and added that he had asked him for help to break into the victim’s house, but he had refused.
Parker was placed in custody at Eastern Regional Jail on $10,000 (£6,125) bail and could face up to ten years in prison if convicted.
Idiot, how cocky must he have been to sit on a PC in someone else’s home that’s he’d just broken into?
