Criminals discover that what goes on Facebook doesn't stay on Facebook.
Chron.com reports that four young people have been charged with robbing a bank in Houston, Texas of $62,000, after police learned about the alleged crime from the suspects' Facebook updates.
Police say the March 23 robbery of the International Bank of Commerce on 1545 Eldridge Parkway was planned by two 19-year old bank tellers, Estefany Martinez and Anna Margarita Rivera.
The young woman allegedly recruited Martinez's 18-year-old boyfriend, Ricky 'Ricko Gee' Gonzalez and Rivera's 22-year-old brother, Arturo Solano, to don plastic masks and stage an armed robbery at the bank at a time when no one else was working there.
One day after the alleged heist, Gonzalez reportedly posted on his Facebook page: 'WIPE MY TEETH WITH HUNDEREDS …'
He also allegedly boasted of wiping another part of his anatomy with $50 bills.
Two days after the robbery, Martinez posted: 'IM RICH …' followed by an obscene rhyme.
