Vandal Arrested After Liking His Own Suspect Photo On Facebook


18-year-old Luis Enrique Rodriguez liked a photo of himself on Facebook.

Trouble is, the photo was posted on the Huntington Beach Police Department’s Facebook page of suspected vandals sought in the July 28 riots at the U.S. Open of Surfing.

Rodriguez then shared the image to his friends on his own Facebook. Soon enough, his friends were commenting on the photo saying that they knew him.

The police showed up at his front door shortly thereafter. Rodriguez was arrested on suspicion of vandalism Friday.

“[O]ur investigation showed him writing ‘[expletive] the pigs’ on the sides of police cars at the scene,” the police department’s Facebook said.

“Mr. Rodriguez, apparently proud of his actions, ‘liked’ the Huntington Beach Police Department’s picture #15 and shared it with his friends, which was noticed by numerous fans of our Facebook page and a series of tips leading to his identification.”
