(Scroll down for video) Two men were arrested and charged with theft related charges after making off with cigarettes and alcohol after a robbery, according to police reports in England.
The two teens who raided a kiosk were captured by the police because they wore the same clothing two days later.
Reece Winfield and Corey Hobson attacked a merchant while stealing alcohol and cigarettes, before posing for a photo with the stolen items and put them on Facebook.
Hobson was stupid enough to comment on a Facebook link reporting the theft, writing: “lol that’s me.”
The 18 and 17-year-old were captured on video surveillance with their underwear showing above their low-rise pants, which helped police find them.
Nottinghamshire Police said the two robbers wore the same underwear when they were arrested, two days later.
Sergeant Phil Sims of the Mansfield police said: “These two made it very easy for us to find them and at the end you could say that they were truly caught with their pants down.
“Obviously they thought it was fun to brag about the crime, sparing no thought for their victim, who was battered, bruised and counting the cost of the theft and damage,” the police officer said.
In an unrelated incident both suspects also detonated a home-made bomb on a street and posted the video of the crime on Facebook.
Both have received a sentence of 32 months for burglary and four months of attempted arson after pleading guilty.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
