Evil Genius Gets Busted After Taunting Cops On Facebook

image

Here's a hint: If you're the cops are looking for you, don't post "Catch me if you can, I'm in Brooklyn" on Facebook.

It seems like there is a particularly epic amount of stupid amongst criminals these days, based on the stories that keep popping up about how they're busted thanks to (or while they're still using) Facebook. There was that guy who tried to hire a hitman via a post on his wall. The one dude who kept updating his status after he took a hostage and was in a stand-off with police. Oh, and that criminal mastermind who posted photos of himself posing with the stuff he was stealing, mid-burglary. And now there's the evil genius who was taunted the cops by saying he was in Brooklyn. Spoiler alert: This guy got caught, too.

Victor Burgos was being sought by Utica police; there were multiple arrest warrants out for him based on "domestic violence and harassment of his ex-girlfriend." In fact, his picture was featured on the police department's website as one of the county's ten-most-wanted criminals.

Apparently being featured on the website is what pushed Burgos to taunt the cops via his Facebook page. "Catch me if you can, I'm in Brooklyn," he wrote. Burgos also posted a video on Facebook of him walking into an NYPD stationhouse that was reportedly in Brooklyn.

Unsurprisingly, a task force of U.S. Marshals and NYPD detectives tracked the young man down in an apartment he was staying in, and met his challenge. Then, he was draged back up to Oneida County to face a number of criminal charges. "He told us via facebook to come and get him and we did," said Sgt. Steve Hauck of the Utica police.

Burgos claims to be a rap music promoter (under the name "R. Mack Milly"). Somehow, his upcoming prison stay doesn't seem like it'll earn him too much street cred, based on how embarrassingly stupid his arrest was.

Hey, at least there's one upside to all this stupidity. The criminals are saving the police some paperwork. Maybe he'll get a bit of a deal for practically turning himself in.

PFFFFFFTTTTTTT HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Ah, it amazeses me how stupid people can be. Police can track Facebook. That's one of their main priorites.

Oh man... If you are that stupid you deserve to be put into the slammer before you hurt somebody from your stupidity! There are consequences; even on the internet

That guy looks way too wannabe to be gangstah.

OMG! This is the guy is from my hometown. Thank god he's been caught.... In the most hilarious way ever.

The stupid! I CANT STAND THE STUPID AAAAH MY BRAIN.
In all seriousness this doesn't actually surprise me
Some people steal for possessions and attention...i guess he was one of those attention seeking thief's *Facepalm*

*sigh* If you're hiding from the police, and you want to taunt them on Facebook, the least you could do is fucking avoid saying what city you're hiding in!

I believe he was wanted for domestic abuse

Stupid criminal is stupid. But seriously, how stupid can anyone (like that) get?

Oh man, that's hilarious.

Yeah, it's generally not a good idea to go "HERE I AM, COME AT ME BRO" if you're trying to hide from the police.

What now? I see the "evil" part but sure as hell not an genius.

At least now he's behind bars and not behind the wheel of a car or a voting booth where he can do real damage.

(Thanks to MovieBob for that insult!)

Ye god, I met some stupid motherfuckers in my life, But that guy took the WHOLE DAMN BAKERY.

"Here's a hint: If you're the cops are looking for you, don't post "Catch me if you can, I'm in Brooklyn" on Facebook."

"And now there's the evil genius who was taunted the cops by saying he was in Brooklyn."

Um.......what? Is it just me or is the grammar the first thing that caught my attention in this story?

Aside from that another amusing story

Hope he's shanked in prison. We don't need him polluting the gene pool more than it already is.

What is with idiots and Facebook? I guess this is the only thing in my opinion that makes FB good. It reveals idiots that deserves to go to jail.

Okay, I changed my mind. Facebook is good for ONE thing: letting really stupid criminals practically turn themselves in. If only more criminals were this stupid.

We need more intelligent criminals on the level on characters like Hannibal Lector and his character from Fracture, honestly. Police work is getting too damned lazed and easy with things like Facebook and utterly idiotic criminals like this..

IN MY DAY.. (insert clever meme here)

Making stupid decisions has nothing to do genetics, sir. Please stop with the inappropriately placed "Darwin Award" shoehorning.

I tought for a second that this was about the game evil genius... I shouldn't read when I am sleepy, but still it's a great game.

Victor Burgos :

"Catch me if you can, I'm in Brooklyn. But Good Luck, I'm Behind 7 Proxies"

Fixed with added meme support.

I think the title was meant to be read in an ironic sense.

lol, don't worry just keep believing.

The sad part is that the idiot in the picture seems to be what most people aspire to these days:

Little wannabe thug. Sigh.

This isn't the first time someone who broke the law was caught because of Facebook, I finally see a positive use for it.

go attention seeker man!

seek that attention!

Maybe the District Attorney can add douchebaggery in the first degree to the list of charges. I nominate him for a new and much more fitting "rap name": MC Shyt-4-Braynz.

"Croyle isn't alone. We're not sure society knows how to deal with a suspect updating his or her Facebook status in the middle of an alleged crime, and we don't think our legal system has caught up to our real-time, 24/7 interactive world yet. Until then, expect more instances like this, hopefully without people pointing out police locations."

Jokes on you Barbara!

Also,

Because chances are you aren't actually in Brooklyn, and it wouldn't be very nice to mislead the cops like that.
Right?
Nice example of irony by the way

Did he do a musical number as he was arrested, at least?

Just wanted to point out that, in this case, the word you're looking for is "sarcastic", rather than "ironic".

OT: If "attention seeking" was a crime, these kinds of criminals should be locked up for life.
