24 Criminals Who Gave Themselves Away Online

Most criminals aren't masterminds, rather they're people who felt like crime was their only option. Often that means they weren't smart enough to achieve anything the normal way, and their crimes reflect that. These criminals committed the cardinal sin of crime, however, by telling on themselves online. Nothing says guilty like bragging about a crime on Facebook. 


Take 19-year-old Rodney Knight Jr. who broke into the home of a Washington Post reporter. His first mistake was thinking that a writer would have anything worth stealing, but after swiping as much cash as he could find, he decided to hang around for one more thing. After discovering the reporter's son's laptop, he opened up its camera and snapped a picture of himself holding some cash, then left the laptop at the scene of the crime. Police used that photo to help apprehend him.
