Conventional wisdom dictates that you don’t post about your crime sprees on Facebook. It should follow, then, that you definitely don’t post about them on the Facebook page of the police department that’s trying to bust you.┬áBut doing just that is what got what got Rolando Lozano caught for a series of auto burglaries he’s charged with committing along with his brother Damian.

The siblings were suspected of the break-ins of at least 17 vehicles in a Rosenberg, Tex., subdivision, KTRK-TV reported. Damian was easily apprehended, but Rolando stayed on the lam. So the cops posted his “wanted” mug on their Facebook page.
