First burglar to be caught by Facebook

Jonathan G Parker, 19 of Fort Loudoun, Pennsylvania, USA could be the dumbest Facebook user ever.

He was such a Facebook addict that after breaking into a house on 28th August 2009 and stealing 2 diamond rings, he could not resist using his victim’s computer to log in to Facebook, then forgot to log off!

A friend knew where Parker was staying, which was nearby, so the hapless robber was quickly arrested.

Interesting comments from cyberspace on the incident:

Status: Jonathan Parker is breaking into someone’s house right now.
