Man stole a judge signplate and shown it on his Facebook and he is now at ........

Almost everyone on Facebook uploads photos to their profiles. For a 21-year old Florida man, it led to his arrest.

Steven Mulhall of Coral Springs, Florida, is accused of stealing a nameplate from the courtroom door of Judge Michael Orlando — the same day he was in Broward County court for a previous theft.

An anonymous tipster told authorities there was a photo posted of Mulhall holding the sign on his girlfriend’s Facebook page. Police matched the photo to a previous mug shot and made the arrest Thursday.

“The nameplate is like only $40, not that big of a crime, but what an idiot.  He puts it on Facebook,” Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
