A picture is worth a thousand words, especially when it’s one of the burglar who robbed your house.

Facebook Stops A Robbery

1447173521 Facebook Stops A Robbery

Nicholas Wig isn’t very good at breaking and entering.

He broke into the home of James Wood and completely destroyed his house. He stole credit cards, cash, even Wood’s watch. In their place, Wig left behind his shoes, jeans, and a picture of his face!

Mid burglary, Wig took a moment to log on to his personal facebook page. However, he forgot to log out.

So the homeowner posted on Wig’s facebook wall, letting him know he had left a few things behind. Wig ended up texting Wood later asking to meet up and exchange the stolen goods for his clothes.

As Wig was headed to the exchange, Wood recognized him and called the police. He was arrested immediately and is now facing up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
