Two budding burglars in Calima, Colombia, are learning the hard way that Facebook and crime do not mix.

The two men walked into an Internet cafe in Calima and used two computers for a while. Eventually they got up, went to the register and demanded money after whipping out their guns. They got all the money and proceeded to escape on a motorcycle.

It may have appeared to be the perfect crime, except one of them forgot to log out of his Facebook account before attempting the robbery.

After the two men left, an employee in the cafe called the police, who discovered that one of the suspects left his Facebook account open on the computer he had been using. They used the information from the account to track down his home address. They then paid him a visit at home and took him to jail.

哥倫比亞卡利馬市兩名初出茅廬的搶匪,嘗到教訓了解到臉書和犯罪不能混為一談。

這兩個傢伙走進卡利馬一間網咖,用了一會兒電腦,最後起身走向櫃檯,接著突然掏出槍命令拿出錢。他們搶走所有的錢,然後搭一輛機車逃走。

這或許看來是一樁完美犯罪,除了他們其中一人忘了登出他犯案前,在那家網咖打卡使用的臉書帳號。

這兩人逃離後,該家網咖一名員工報警,警方發現,其中一名嫌犯在剛才使用的電腦裡,臉書帳號未登出。拜此之賜,警方利用這個資訊追查到他家地址,上門找人,將他送進監牢。
