Some people can’t wait to brag about their crimes. Four clowns robbed a local corner store in Pittsburgh and took pictures posing with nearly $8,000 in cash and others various stolen items only one hour after the robbery. A family member of one of the burglars tipped the police the moment she discovered the images on Facebook. Sgt. Kevin Gasiorowski shared his relief over the simplicity of the bust saying, “It makes our job a lot easier when basically they post what amounts to a confession on the Internet for everyone to see.” The four-person crew was arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy.
