    Saw this on Mashable.com today. This guy must have big balls, or be pretty damn stupid to go on his victim's facebook and post comments about stealing her things.

    Here's the story from mashable:

    Talk about adding insult to injury: a burglar who stole a laptop and other properties from a woman?s house later logged into the victim?s Facebook account and bragged about the deed, complaining that the TV in the victim?s house wasn?t good enough to steal.

    The property was stolen from Victoria Richardson, 42, who lives in Hove, UK. The burglar stole an iPhone, a Nintendo DS, a handbag, some cash and credit cards and a black Toshiba laptop. As if that wasn?t enough, Victoria later logged into her Facebook (Facebook) account, discovering that the thief had left several messages on her account. They read:

    ?on my new laptop?

    ?Listening to music on my new phone feels so good.?

    ?I have the laptop , phones ok but a bit scratched itll do, tv was rubbish so I left it, ds was a bonus, now to the porn shop, thankyou toshiba is my favourite make?.

    ?regards your night time burglar?.

    This incident proves that an invasion of your online space can be just as traumatic as the invasion of your physical space. As Ms Richardson put it: ?I felt very spooked. I have never felt like that before. It felt like they were rubbing my nose in it.? However, these despicable Facebook messages also prove that the thief is quite stupid. Leaving traces of his/her activity on a social networking site can only help the police trace them and bring them to justice.

    I hope they catch this guy! What a pos...

    Doubt it, unless the dumb shit logged on to the network from his home connection....These people haven't heard of war driving obviously, lol....but it doe suck for the woman. My wife's purse was stolen from her work locker two years ago, anf they made out with our rent money, and a $250 VW Key, that we had NO spare for.

    We had to have the car towed an hour away to another city to a VW dealer that could get a new key made, as there isn't a dealer local to us. Needless to say that Sucked ASS, as it took 2 weeks to get, and Another $200 in tow fees.

    What a moron...Most likely the thief did log on to FB from his home connection as he can't spell PAWN shop. What an arse. I hope she locks the phone via IMEI and really f his day up. This is the reason why laptops need GPS signaling in them

    May be he will log back in if the password isn't changed. and after about 5 mins. Cops would be raiding his trailer.

    Then if I was the lady, I'd take a pic of him behind bars and post it on my wall with the caption "Warning: Touch everything but my Facebook, ho's!"

    That would piss me off! not only is your stuff gone and you have to go through the process or replacing it all/insurance troubles but you know the thief is @#$%wit and just wants to rub it in. Sure hope they catch him!
