A men was arrested for robbing an Internet café in Colombia, caught only because he forgot to log out of his Facebook account, which he had checked on one of the computers in the establishment immediately prior to the crime. This is truly the epitome of a stupid criminal story.

MSNBC explains:

Basically, two fellas walked into an Internet cafe in Calima — a place north of the city of Cali, Colombia — and used two computers for a while. Eventually they got up, went to the register and proceeded to whip out guns and demand money. They got all the money and proceeded to escape on a motorcycle.

After the two men left, an employee in the Internet cafe called the police, who discovered that one of the suspects left his Facebook account logged in on the computer he'd used. They used the information discovered thanks to that to track down his home address, paid him a visit and took him to jail.

The man's partner remains at large, and has probably deactivated his Facebook account by now.
