Facebook boast lands jail term

Burglar Roy Boodle will have plenty of time behind bars to contemplate his unwise online behaviour that proved criminals also need to be careful what they do online.

While social networking site members are being warned about risky behaviour online to protect them from identity theft by cyber criminals, Boodle’s risky online behaviour landed him a three-and-a-half year jail term.

He stole £12 from a police station charity box, then boasted about it on Facebook. It was only a matter of time before police caught up with him and getting a conviction was not difficult, because Boodle had provided on the evidence online.
