In Other News: A Carjacker Is Busted When He Shows Up in His Victim’s “People You May Know” on Facebook

Omar Famuyide

A 21-year-old guy named Omar Famuyide in Birmingham, England pulled a gun on a man last August and stole his BMW. The police tried to track him down, but they didn’t have much to go on.

But that changed when the victim was messing around on Facebook, and Omar’s picture popped up as one of his “People You May Know.” He recognized him immediately and called the cops.

And now that they had Omar’s name and his photo, they tracked him down and arrested him.

He was in court this week for armed robbery charges . . . and it turns out that before he stole the guy’s car, he’d also robbed a few other people. So he was just sentenced to 21 years in prison. Well done, Facebook.
