Suspected Robber Caught by Cops After Reportedly Using Social Media in a Colossally Stupid Way

She didn't recognize the man but noticed a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.


PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (TheBlaze/AP) — Some guys just don't know when to quit.

Authorities say that a 28-year-old man suspected of robbing a woman at a Washington ferry terminal friended her on Facebook the next day.

As a result of a subsequent investigation, Riley Allen Mullins was charged Friday in Kitsap District Court with second-degree robbery, The Kitsap Sun reported.

Authorities said a woman was sitting at the Bremerton ferry terminal on Tuesday using her headphones when she was struck on the head from behind. After being struck, a man grabbed her iPod and purse and ran. She didn't recognize the man but noticed a tattoo of a triangle on his neck.

The next day, the woman received a Facebook friend notification and recognized the sender as the man who robbed her.

Investigators confirmed the Facebook account belonged to Mullins, and they noted a profile picture of Mullins showing the triangle neck tattoo.

Mullins remained in the Kitsip County Jail Saturday on $50,000 bail.
