No one ever said criminals were particularly intelligent. With all the stories we’ve seen of various people revealing things they shouldn’t on social networking systems, you knew that stories like this one were going to become more common. Apparently a fugitive on the run for bank fraud not only updated his Facebook status with his whereabouts (a resort in Cancun, Mexico), but also “friended” a former Justice Department official, who helped hand over the fugitive’s info to officials who tracked down and arrested the guy.
