Dumb online Post of the week

A posting on the social networking Web site MySpace led teenagers to an empty home in North Canton, Ohio, that they used as a hangout spot, police allege.

North Canton Police Department Chief Michael Grimes said eight teenagers, whose identities were not released, are now facing both felony and misdemeanor charges for allegedly breaking into an area home while its owners were away, WEWS-TV, Cleveland, reported Tuesday.

“They knew the family would be gone and so they broke into the house and things went downhill from there,” Grimes alleged. “They ate the food that was there, used some of the alcohol that was there, borrowed the family car that was left there.”

Grimes said the teenagers allegedly learned the house would be empty for a week after reading a MySpace posting by one of the children in the family.

Turning on your computer apparently switches off your brain at the same time.
