A pair of brazen Dundee crooks were caught by police after taking pictures of themselves with their criminal haul.
After stealing almost £4,000 worth of alcohol, Kevin O’Donnell and John McGrandle posed for snaps which they then posted on social media.
Meanwhile, McGrandle stole a BMW and parked it up in front of a restaurant before going for a meal – all in full view of CCTV cameras.
Solicitor Jim Laverty admitted the bungling pair had slipped up by posting their pictures online, saying: “The police used the Facebook entry as fairly compelling evidence of their involvement.”
Both men were jailed after appearing at Dundee Sheriff Court.

[LOS ANGELES – A teenager who stole a rooftop panel from the wrecked Porsche of actor Paul Walker, soon after the Fast and Furious star was killed in a crash, was sentenced on Thursday to six months in jail, a spokesman for prosecutors said. On the day of crash, someone using the Instagram handle “jamesonwitty” posted photos of a portion of the roof of a red Porsche and wrote, “Piece of Paul walkers car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light.”]
