Fugitive’s Foolish Facebook Statuses Gets Him Caught

By  |  Sunday, July 31, 2011 at 10:25 am

Mark Victor Burgos up as one of the world’s most stupid fugitives. The 29-year-old apparently found it amusing to taunt law enforcement over his Facebook page, even going as far as to say in a post “Catch me if you can, I’m in Brooklyn.” Well, guess where cops found him.

Burgos, a Brooklyn resident, was wanted by the Utica, N.Y. Police for questioning surrounding charges of domestic violence and harassment against an ex-girlfriend. Seemingly thinking he could play games with the police over Facebook, he posted a series of taunts, even going as far as posting a video of him walking into what is believed to be an NYPD police station.

Police say that Burgos’ Facebook page was open when they finally tracked him down to an apartment in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. U.S. Marshals and representatives of the NYPD made the arrest, and was transferred back upstate to face a judge on the charges Tuesday.

No word on what Burgos has plead or if Facebook assisted in tracking him down, but he did delete his taunts before police busted through his door — probably realizing they could be used as evidence against him. Probably the smartest thing he did in this whole mess, don’t you think?

    When people are complaining about the privacy issues of Facebook, this news story is probably one of the few out there in which Facebook was instrumental in catching a criminal. There have also been cases of sexual predators being apprehended because of Facebook, but it still does not lend full support to the privacy problem.

    Apparently thoughts he could engage in recreation sports competition with the police over Face book, he post a series of mocking, even leaving as far as redistribution a videocassette of him on foot into what is thought to be an NYDIA law enforcement position.
