Burglar leaves his Facebook page on victim’s computer.


Recommended Posts

The popular online social networking site Facebook helped lead to an alleged burglar's arrest after he stopped check his account on the victim's computer, but forgot to log out before leaving the home with two diamond rings.

Jonathan G. Parker, 19, of Fort Loudoun, Pa., was arraigned Tuesday one count of felony daytime burglary.

According to court records, Deputy P.D. Ware of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department responded on Aug. 28 to the victim's home after she reported the burglary.

She told police that someone had broken into her home through a bedroom window.

There were open cabinets in her garage, and other signs of a burglar.

The victim later noticed that the intruder also used her computer to check his Facebook status, and his account was still open when she checked the computer.

The victim later noticed that she was missing two diamond rings from her dresser in the same room as her computer.

The two rings were worth more than $3,500, reports indicate.

During the investigation, a friend of the victim told her that he knew where Parker was staying, in the same area as the victim's house.

Police then went to the home and spoke with a friend of Parker's.

The man said Parker had stopped by his home occasionally, but he said the man didn't live there.

He also said that the night before the burglary, Parker asked him if he wanted to help break into the victim's home but he refused.

As of Tuesday evening, Parker remained in custody at the Eastern Regional Jail on $10,000 bail.

If convicted he faces one to 10 years in prison.

What an idiot.

... When my mother and I were robbed one of the three finger prints they got was from my mothers toilet, they lifted the seat to use it.

I understand when you gotta go you gotta go, but you can wait 30 minutes until you are done stealing shit and get home to check you facebook.

Wow... What's his Facebook account called? Damn I wanna add him. Guess it won't matter from his jail sentence :P

Meh, he needs to know more about computers, really... Even if he'd logged out, the history would probably indicate his username. Plus cookies may remain and if really necessary, most authorities have access to everyones Facebook anyway so they could have easily traced him from that.

I don't like the "1-10 years", though. It should be less... I mean, if he's THAT stupid he's not really as much of a threat than other criminals, lol. That would be a kick in the teeth "You're being let go because you're too stupid to do anything serious, anyway".
