Fugitive Posts His Location on Facebook, Police Login to Express Their Thanks

 

Indiana: 39-year-old fugitive Christopher Crego is back in police custody after practically handing himself to police on a silver platter using his Facebook and MySpace pages.

Crego, who fled sentencing on assault charges, displayed his correct address on Facebook along with a comment to the effect that police will never catch me. Police were left with the simple task of going to his address and arresting him.

Following the arrest police logged onto Facebook and posted their thanks on his page, saying that "it was due to your diligence in keeping us informed that now you are under arrest."

  @JayWar  
 
Should be just above the title. If not, click the permalink to the right above the title and it will be.

  What a stupid criminal, how dumb can you be?  
 
Anyone know what his Facebook page is, lol.

By the way, it´s gonna look like I´m spamming since you´re gonna see this in every single one of my messages from now on, but I´m trying to call attention to this- Shortnews.com seriously NEEDS TO BE UPDATED. The design style, page layout, and even the login abilities, it screams 8-10 years ago. I mean, simple things like that fact that the html coding doesn´t allow for viewing this on a widescreen (how many people are looking at two GENERIC blue rectangular slams on either side of this relatively NARROW STRIP of text in the middle? Come on guys, I don´t know who the hec to even bug about this, but someone help me with this cause, I LOVE this site, but this crap is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo outdated in its format and structure. That is all.

Maybe you should offer your services, instead of using more bandwidth to spam the boards and adding costs that could potentially be used for development.
