Instagram Selfies result in 142 Criminal Felony Counts
19-year-old Dupree Johnson decided it would be a great idea to document his stash of stolen loot on Instagram.

He now finds himself behind bars and facing 142 felony counts thanks to his sharing habit. His rap sheet already included felony convictions for grand theft, burglary, and felony possession of a firearm.

Photos posted to his now closed account showed him flaunting his collection of guns, jewels, and drugs which gave the police enough reason to acquire a search warrant.

When they arrived at Johnson’s home, they found a quarter million dollars in stolen goods and enough evidence to label him the “ring leader” in dozens of Palm Beach senior center burglaries. According to news reports, when the police asked him his occupation, he replied “thief.”
