|Teens got busted hauling loot from their robberies.|
If you're committing a criminal act in the daylight, don't be a fool. If you're recording this stuff and posting it on social media, then you're just a stupid idiot. I guess this is one of those "You Can't Fix Stupid" moments.
Four Florida teens are spending the night in the county after they were caught on film posting a home burglary. They wanted to show their bounty on film. They were flashing that cash, them jewels and that nice new ride they've swiped from an Oakland Park neighborhood.
The teens -- identified as Jaynell Justin, 16, of Oakland Park; Amos Marc, 17, of Oakland Park; Lamonte Scott, 16, of Oakland Park; and Machel Stevens, 18, of Fort Lauderdale -- left the stolen items in the stolen car after getting into a crash in Fort Lauderdale, BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said.
Among the stolen items that police found in the car was the camcorder that the teens used to record the nearly three-minute long video, Moschella said.
Fort Lauderdale police tracked the stolen items to residential burglaries in Boca Raton and Oakland Park. When BSO detectives saw the video, they recognized each bragging burglary suspect, Moschella said.
The teens were arrested on charges of burglary and grand theft.
Detectives believe the teens have committed at least 25 residential burglaries in Oakland Park, as well as stealing and burglarizing cars.
