Moron Thief Forgets to Log Out After Checking Facebook During Burglary

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Minnesota police arrested a burglary suspect who apparently forgot to log out of Facebook after checking his profile during a break-in at a St. Paul home.


The homeowner came back to his house and found that credit cards, cash and a watch were missing."


The thief left behind a pair of running shoes and jeans, and the homeowner`s computer logged on to his Facebook page. He might as well have typed in status: Burglarizing a house!

A professional burglar will be in and out of a victim`s house in a couple of minutes, he won`t take time to use the bathroom, raid the refrigerator, or log on to his Facebook page.

Needless to say Nicholas Wig isn`t very professional, he should find an easier line of work, maybe stealing candy from babies.

The homeowner, James Wood, updated Wig`s Facebook status, warning everyone Wig is a thief. He also left his phone number asking anyone to call with information on where to find the brainless burglar. Wig actually texted the victim and they agreed to meet so the homeowner could return the thief`s shoes and jeans. When Wood spotted him heading toward the house, he called police.

The intellectually-challenged burglar has a rap sheet as long as his arm, including a second-degree burglary conviction from 2008, a domestic assault misdemeanor, and pending drug charges.
