A suspected bank robber who goes by “King Romeo” on Facebook helped seal his own fate after sharing several photos of himself posing with a submachine gun.

Jules Bahler, 21, is accused of robbing three Michigan banks over the course of a week. He allegedly hit a Genisys Credit Union for $4,300 on FEb. 26 and a Bank of America for $4,000 on March. 4. He is also accused of robbing a Chemical Bank of $7,000 on March 5.

A detective working the case came across Bahler’s Facebook page and noticed photos of the man holding a weapon similar to the one used in two of the robberies, according to FBI agent Sean Gallaghan. The photos also showed him wearing clothing similar to that worn by the suspect caught on the security cameras.

Officers staked out Bahler’s home in Pontiac and pulled him over on Friday after he left his house. While searching his vehicle investigators discovered a black submachine gun in a duffle bag.
