So, you burglarize someone’s home. If you are also a Facebook user, you might just post a picture of yourself with your ill-gotten gains on FB. That’s what one burglar did. See report. The burglar stole money, an ipod, a laptop and a man’s new winter coat from the home of Marc Fisher, a reporter for the Washington Post. So, of course, the burglar posted a picture of himself wearing the new winter coat, cash in hand on Marc Fisher’s son’s FB page. See Marc’s blog post.
