I am always shocked at how much personal information people are willing to share on their social sites, but seriously, this is definitely a case of TMI (too much information).
An 18-year-old Pittsburgh man is accused of burglarizing a market with three teens, then posting pictures on his Facebook page showing the suspects posing with some of the loot.
Isaiah Cutler has been in jail since last Friday for the Dec. 12th burglary.
Police say 17-year old Cutler and two 14-year-olds stole more than $8,000 worth of cash, cigarettes, candy, and checks from the business. About an hour later, police say, Cutler posted pictures of the teens posing with the loot on his page on the social networking site.
Well, I guess they’re just stupid kids,” Detective Valerie Milie said Monday. “They thought they could put (the pictures) out there for their friends who friended them on Facebook to see. But the one kid had 200 friends, but not only were they friends, some of them were relatives who became concerned and called police.”
Police were already tracking down the teens based on the Facebook photos and the surveillance video from the store by the time the parents determined what happened, Milie said.
The younger suspects have been charged in juvenile court and have been released to their parents.
Cutler faced a preliminary hearing yesterday on charges of theft, burglary and conspiracy.
