Man Charged With 142 Felonies After Cops See His Instagram Page

A few selfies posted to Instagram landed a Florida man behind bars.

A sheriff in Palm Beach County came across the Instagram page of 19-year-old Dupree Johnson. Learning that Johnson had a rap sheet which included grand theft, burglary, and felony possession of a firearm, the deputy decided to take a closer look at the pictures of Johnson posing with iced-out jewelry and guns.

A judge quickly issued a search warrant for Johnson’s Lake Worth, Fla. home.

Turns out the officer’s hunch was dead on. Deputies not only discovered a Glock underneath his bedspread and a stolen – and loaded – Tec-9 9mm pistol, but also $250,000 worth of stolen jewelry, electronics and and firearms, Miami New Times reported.

Police believe Johnson may be one of several people responsible for as many as 40 burglaries in the area.

By the time authorities were done cataloguing the goods, Johnson had been charged with 142 felony counts of being in possession of a weapon or ammo.

WPTF-TV reports that when police were filling out the arrest report and asked Johnson for his occupation, he replied “thief.”

Johnson is behind bars and his Instagram page “Duce22ceritfied” is no longer working.
