Credit Card Thieves Spend Big Bucks at Carls Jr., Busted After Posting Instagram Photo of Food
I know Instragramming photos of food is a thing, but if you’ve stolen a credit card, it’s probably not the best idea to post a picture of your illegal purchases. Four people in Northern California recently learned that lesson after breaking into several cars and stealing a charge card from one of them.
They then used the pilfered plastic to buy $120 worth of food at a Carl’s Jr. And they might’ve gotten away with it too if they would’ve left well enough alone. But instead, they decided to share a filtered photo of their feast, which included five hamburgers, five orange crème shakes, three barbeque chicken quesadillas, one bacon Swiss chicken sandwich, six orders of fries, two orders of fried zucchini, two teriyaki burgers, and five chicken tacos. The dumb***s arranged all the food on the back of their 1994 Oldsmobile and and posted a pic of the huge order on Instagram.
Police eventually traced the stolen credit card to the Carl’s Jr. purchase, and, after questioning employees, found out about the online photo from one of the workers who knew one of the thieves. That was all the proof the cops needed to arrest all four on conspiracy and possession of stolen property charges, as well as unauthorized use of personal ID. That and the license plate that was clearly visible in the photo. #StupidCriminals, y’all!
