Levi Charles Reardon was arrested shortly after clicking "like" on a post meant to help apprehend him.


"Hey, that's me!" (via Facebook)

If you think your own Facebook addiction is bad, be thankful you're not this guy. His is sending him to jail.

Levi Charles Reardon is a 23-year-old Montana man suspected of stealing a wallet that contained a checkbook, and forging checks from it. His picture was shared on the Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers Facebook page, where he was identified as April's most wanted. What happened next, though, is nuts.

One of his Facebook friends saw him and tagged him into the photo, evidently thinking he would find it funny. And I guess he did, because he clicked "like" on the post from an account using his real, full name. Police haven't specified how they apprehended Reardon, but it happened not long after the Facebook incident, so it's reasonable to assume there's a connection. Not that it's hard to believe the law caught up to him. He doesn't seem that good at covering his tracks.
