Burglar Allegedly Checks Facebook Account While Robbing a House
Lots of people have asked: does all the time we spend on Facebook make us dumber? After reading about a 19-year-old Pennsylvania kid's allegedly bungled burglary, the answer just might be, yes. The Journal reports that Jonathan G. Parker was arraigned Tuesday on one count of felony burglary, after he allegedly stole two diamond rings from a Martinsburg, West Virginia home. The police didn't even break a sweat during the investigation. The victim noticed somebody had logged in to Parker's Facebook account on her computer and forgotten to sign out.
How hard-up would this kid have to be for his social networking fix? Considering his alleged spoils, if he'd just waited a while, Parker could've bought his own computer. (The rings are worth over $3,500.) Of course, logical thought isn't the average criminal's strong suit, as evidenced by the number of times Facebook has led to an arrest. [From: The Journal]
