A prolific robber was caught after he was found boasting about his heists on Facebook – before he had even committed them. Jesse Hippolite, 24, posted ‘I Gotta Get that $$$$$ Man!!!!’ on the social networking site just 45 minutes before he terrorised a Chase branch in Brooklyn, New York, last July. Police detained him when, after another heist, a bank employee noted the license plate number of the car he used – which had been borrowed from a friend. Using the FBI and NYPD’s license plate reader camera system to determine where it had been stopped in the previous weeks, they found it had been near 19 banks that had been robbed. They then checked his page on the social networking site.
