SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities arrested four burglary suspects after investigators found a photograph posted online of $120 worth of food from a fast food restaurant that was purchased with a stolen credit card.

The Sacramento Bee reports the four — three adults and a juvenile — allegedly broke into vehicles Sunday in Rocklin, swiping wallets and other items.

One of the burglary victims learned her credit card had been used at a nearby Carl's Jr. restaurant to pay for $120 worth of food at the drive-through window.

Police were led to the suspects after one of the suspects posted a photo to Instagram, of the large amount of food they had purchased.

A Carl's Jr. employee also posted a photo to Instagram, of the lengthy $120 receipt. Another employee grew suspicious and took down the suspects' license plate number.

I'm sure that instead of having their slimy behinds thrown in jail they will be told how to leach off of the system and how to get food stamps, housing, medical and dental care, a cell phone and welfare payment.
