File this one under, “REALLY?!?”
A 36-year-old man in Singapore broke into the home of his childhood friend to ransack the place and steal a tortoise he said had been promised to him.
He then posted a picture of himself with the tortoise on social media, calling it his new pet.
The friend spotted it right away (duh) and called the cops.

Have you or someone you know ever been busted for something you posted online?
