Ladies and gentlemen, we’re officially ready to crown the world’s stupidest criminal.
When a Minnesota man allegedly broke into someone’s home last week, he just had to check his Facebook profile while he was there. It’s hard to imagine settling down at a computer desk in the midst of such an adrenaline rush, but OK, fine. Nicholas Wig really slipped up, however, when he somehow forgot to log off.
The police definitely gave that a Facebook “like”.
Once the homeowner returned and noticed his property had been looted, he quickly realized the robber’s mistake. Using Wig’s profile, James Wood posted that he had been robbed and also left his phone number, in case any of Wig’s friends decided to be good Samaritans.
Strangely, it was Wig himself who texted him back. Apparently the crook had left some wet clothes behind after the robbery, and was hoping Wood could meet with him so he could have them returned.
Wow. This guy is worse than the crooks on Home Alone.
Not surprisingly, Wood agreed to meet the thief, and then called the police when he arrived.
Looks like Wig won’t be posting any status updates for awhile.
