Fugitive Chris Crego Helps Cops Find Him Using Facebook

Chris Crego was arrested in 2009 for fighting in a bar in Lockport, New York.  Crego pleaded guilty, but did not show up for the sentencing.  He left the state and found a job somewhere else. The police started searching for Crego using the Internet.  They uncovered a Facebook and a MySpace profile.  Crego said his current residence was Terre Haute, Indiana and he worked at a tattoo parlor called Body Ink Art. The police arrested him shortly after finding the Facebook profile.  His profile even showed his wanted picture in New York.

“If it wasn’t for criminals like him our job would be a lot harder,” stated Capt. Richard Podgers.  The police also left a message on his Facebook thanking him: “it was due to your diligence in keeping us informed that now you are under arrest.” [CBSNews]
