IT’S rule number two in the criminal handbook (after ‘Don’t talk about Fight Club’) – if you’re on the run, you really need to stop updating your facebook.

Robert Lewis Crose, on the run for the past 12 years as a terrorist threat, was too busy becoming a fan of ‘escaping the law’ on facebook to learn the rules.

Last week he left a comment on Facebook regarding the cold weather, saying: ‘Water line froze even with heat tape and wrap.’

The intelligent criminal (pictured) then went on to post his location as Cut Bank Montana when someone asked where he was.

Imagine you have just told facebook where you are. What’s your next step? If you chose ‘run away as far as possible’, you’re on your way to freedom. As for Crose? He was picked up at the local casino.
