Stupid Criminals Get Caught After Stupidest Facebook Mistake Yet

Just when I thought criminals with Facebook accounts can't possibly be more stupid, another imbecile comes along and proves me wrong by robbing an internet cafe at gunpoint—after using one of the computers to log into Facebook and leaving his account open.

It happened in the neighborhood of Calima, north of the city of Cali, Colombia. Two men arrived to an internet cafe, rented two computers, did their thing for a bit and, as they pretended to be paying, they took out guns and got all the money.


The cafe administrator then called the police, who came in and discovered the Facebook account still open in the computer used by one of the morons. The police got his address and drove comfortably to the criminal's home. The stupid thief is now in jail.

They should make some law to increase the sentences to moronic individuals like this. Five years for armed robbery and one extra year for being a cretin with a Facebook account. [El Tiempo - In Spanish]
