Stupid Criminal: Social media stupid

Nicholas Wig

Once again social media appears to be the downfall of today's Stupid Criminal.

Thanks to Facebook, a Minnesota man who allegedly broke into a home was easily tracked down.

Police arrested Nicholas Wig last week after they say he entered a home in south St. Paul.

The homeowner said Wig took cash, credit cards and a watch.

But, his undoing came when he used the homeowner's computer to log into his Facebook account and left his profile up on the screen.

Wig admitted to breaking into the home and taking the stolen items. Now, he's charged with a felony and if convicted could face up to 10 years in jail.
