Another Dumb Criminal On Facebook Gets Busted
Law enforcement agencies across the land must be celebrating just how easy Facebook has made their job. Not only can they have users help them bust criminals, but some of them are dumb enough to post their crimes on the site.
Michael Baker, from Kentucky, posted the picture you see above on his personal Facebook page. Yes, you are seeing it correctly. Baker is siphoning gas out of a police cruiser, while flipping off the camera. What a genius.
Baker said he girlfriend took the pic and posted it on Facebook. “We was just standing there and thought it would be funny to take a picture and then post it on Facebook,” he said on local TV station WYMT.
The law came to arrest Baker for theft this past Monday. He wasn't able to get that much gas from the vehicle. The police department said they are now looking in to locking gas caps. Smart move.
