South St. Paul, MN - Last Thursday, Nicholas Wig, 26, broke into a South St. Paul home and stole some items. While at the home, Wig used a computer to log in to his Facebook (FB) account and then forgot to log off, according to WCCO News. 
When James Wood came home, he noticed that someone had broken in and several items were stolen. Wood than noticed that Wig had used his computer and left his FB page logged in. Wood wrote a comment on Wig's FB that he had left some items at his home and wanted to return them. 
Wood then spotted Wig walking to his burglarized home and called police. Police arrested Wig who was still wearing Wood's watched. Wood had made an arrangement to meet Wig so, he could return some clothes that were left at the burglarized home in return for a recycle cellphone Wig had taken Wood's home.
Wood told WCCO News, that if Wig would not have left his FB page logged in, he wouldn't have been caught.
If convicted, Wig is facing up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.
