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.
