MINNEAPOLIS — We’ve all forgotten to log out of Facebook. But for one burglar, forgetting to log out will likely cost him some time behind bars.
According to Fox40.com, a man allegedly ransacked a Minnesota home last week, stealing credit cards, cash and personal items. He also took time to log in to the home’s computer, spending a moment to browse Facebook.
The homeowner, noticing the crook used the computer and forgot to log out, decided to share the criminal’s photo and update his status to say, “Watch out for this guy, he’s a crook.”
The homeowner also left his own number on the criminal’s page, encouraging anyone who knew where the man was to contact him.
Local police used the information to track him down. He now faces up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines if convicted.
