In this edition of Stupid Criminals, we check in with a guy decides to rob a man’s apartment, and while in the act of looting the place, logs into Facebook on the victim’s computer, and forgets to log out.

According to Pioneer Press, 26-year-old Nicholas Wig of South St. Paul, Minnesota broke into a guy’s house last week, and stole cash, credit cards, some keys, and a watch.

While he was in the house, he also logged into Facebook on the guy’s computer.

He didn’t steal the computer though, and more importantly, he didn’t bother to log out of Facebook either.

So when the guy who lived there got home, he found Wig logged into Facebook, and sent his info along to the cops.

They arrested Wig, and he has been charged with felony burglary.

He is facing up to 10 years in prison, just because he forgot to log out of Facebook.
