We have seen Facebook involved in various alleged crimes through the years (here, here). However, Jonathan Parker, 19, in Martinsburg, West Virginia, has created a category of his own in alleged Facebook felonies: he was arrested after leaving his Facebook account on a victim’s computer — apparently after stopping during a burglary to log into his page.
The Pennsylvania man allegedly broke into a woman’s home and stole two rings worth $3500. Her computer, however, appeared too great a temptation for a Facebook fix. The victim later found the Facebook account still on her screen.
He has been charged with daytime burglary.
