  • Step One: Rob a bank (allegedly).
  • Step Two: Post pictures of your loot on Facebook.
  • Step Three: Get caught.

THAT WAS THE sequence of events for Ohio man John Morgan (28), accused of robbing a bank in Ashville last month.

Local police say that Morgan was picked up in his home town of Pataskala after a tip off through a Crime Stoppers call in service.

According to the Circleville Herald the fact that he had a criminal record, his parents live in the Ashville area, and photos of him with wads of cash had recently appeared on Facebook all made pointing the finger simple enough.

He and his girlfriend, Ashley Duboe (24) has now been charged over the robbery, NBC12 reports.
