Burglar gets Facebooked

Talk about leaving a calling card!

Jonathan G. Parker, age 19, was charged with breaking into a Martinsburg, W.Va. house and stealing two diamond rings worth more than $3500, according to The Journal.

But during the course of committing the crime, the alleged crook couldn’t resist the allure of hopping on the victim’s computer to check his Facebook page.

Why he chose that particular situation to update his status and mindlessly tune into the lives of his 200 closest friends, one can only speculate.

But in a move destined to go down in dumb criminal history, he failed to log off of his account before making off with the stolen goods.

Status update: Parker, who was swiftly arrested, now faces one to ten years in prison.

That’s a long time to go without a Facebook fix.
