Four Bank Robbers Are Caught After One of Them Bragged About It On Facebook

Back on March 23rd, two men walked into a branch of the International Bank of Commerce in Houston, Texas, forced two tellers into the vault and stole more than $62,000. They got away clean, and were never caught.

And they might’ve gotten away with it too…if they hadn’t taken to Facebook.

The day after the robbery, 18-year-old Ricky Gonzalez posted a Facebook status update that said, quote, “U have to past the line sometimes!  To get dis money!”  Yes, he said “past” and not “pass.”  Might not be dealing with a genius here.

His girlfriend…19-year-old Estefany Martinez…was one of the bank tellers during the robbery. She posted, quote, “I’m rich, [witch].” Only she didn’t say witch. And two days before the robbery, she wrote, quote, “Get $$$.”

The cops quickly connected it. The robbery was an inside job, set up by Estefany and another teller named Anna Rivera. The two robbers were Estefany’s boyfriend, Ricky, and Anna’s brother, a 22-year-old named Arturo Solano.

All four are looking at up to 10 years in prison.
