Dumbest thief ever logs into Facebook on victim’s computer during burglary, forgets to log out

Stupidest Criminals Ever Facebook Burglar

The world is full of truly stupid would-be criminals but one Minnesota man might have just taken the crown for the title of World’s Stupidest Thief. CBS Minnesota reports that police arrested 26-year-old Nicholas Wig for allegedly burglarizing a home in South St. Paul on June 19th after his victim discovered that Wig had used his computer to log into his Facebook page and never logged out before leaving. When police arrived to arrest Wig, they also found that he was wearing his victim’s wrist watch, which obviously won’t help with any potential defense.

Homeowner James Wood was needless to say surprised to see that Wig had taken the time to log into Facebook while allegedly burglarizing his house, let alone that he had forgotten to log out of it before leaving.

“World’s dumbest criminal,” Wood told CBS Minnesota. “I started to panic… but then I noticed he had pulled up his Facebook profile.”

Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom concurred with Wood’s assessment that Wig might be the stupidest alleged thief he’s ever seen.

“I’ve never seen this before,” he said. “It’s a pretty unusual case, might even make the late night television shows in terms of not being too bright.”
