Epic Fail of the Day: Man Faces Felony Charges After Police Search His Instagram

Another case of a criminal getting busted after posting evidence of their illegal activity on Facebook.

In today’s episode of “People Sure Like to Post Their Criminal Activity on the Internets,” we have 19-year-old Depree Johnson, of South Florida, who was charged with 142 felony accounts after his Instagram page caught the attention of local authorities.

According to Yahoo, Johnson already had a rap sheet that included grand theft, burglary, and felony possession of a firearm but he still posted incriminating photos of himself flaunting cash, jewelry, drugs and weapons on the social networking site.

A local sheriff spotted his page and called for a search warrant.  Police found $250,000 in loot including illegal guns and ammo, and Johnson was eventually named the ringleader in a string of 30 to 40 burglaries in Palm Beach-area senior centers.

Johnson has been charged with 142 counts of being a felon in possession of a weapon or ammo.

Officers also arrested four other people alleged to be working with Johnson.
