Gunmen rob internet cafe, forgot to log out of Facebook


Two budding burglars in Calima, Colombia, are learning the hard way that Facebook and crime don’t mix.

It seems the two aspiring — and unidentified — criminals robbed an Internet cafe at gunpoint recently and proceeded to make a clean getaway on a motorcycle, according to MSNBC.

It may have appeared to be the perfect crime, except one of them forgot to log out of the Facebook account he’d checked at the cafe before attempting the robbery.

As you might expect, the police got his address, drove to the criminal’s home and took the suspect to jail, Gizmodo reported.

The rise of Facebook seems to have coincided with an increased number of reports of dumb thieves.

In December, Isiah Cutler was accused of burglarising a market in Pittsburgh with three teens, then posted pictures on his Facebook page showing the suspects mugging with some of the loot.

Last month, Michael Baker of Jenkins, Ky., was arrested for siphoning gas from a police car after he posted a picture of himself committing the crime on Facebook.

No wonder Adam Falk of Mashable is suggesting Mark Zuckerberg make the social network’s unique crime fighting potential a major part of the IPO.
