Michael Baker, a Kentucky man, was recently arrested for stealing gasoline. He committed three mistakes that led to his arrest:
- He siphoned it from a police cruiser
- He allowed his girlfriend to take a photograph of the crime (by the way, it didn’t help that he was “flipping the bird” in the photograph).
- He posted the photograph on Facebook.
The photograph spread virally and the Jenkins Police took notice. Baker was arrested shortly thereafter and taken to jail in a Jenkins police cruiser. The police commented that, if Baker would steal from law enforcement, he’d steal from “just about anybody.”
Jenkins police said they will install locking gas caps on their cruisers to prevent something like this from happening in the future.
