Today's award goes to an Ohio couple who couldn't keep their mouths shut (in his case, literally).
John Mogan, 28, and his girlfriend Ashley Duboe, 24, were charged with robbery for the heist at the Savings Bank in Ashville, Ohio on August 24.
Mogan allegedly walked into the bank wearing a hooded sweatshirt and gave the teller a note demanding cash, and the teller did as told.
Mogan's mugshot and Facebook photos show he is heavily tattooed with ink across his face including the phrases “Loyalty’s Thin” and “Betrayal’s Thick.” But authorities allege that Duboe applied makeup to his face and neck to cover the tattoos before the robbery, according to The Smoking Gun.
Police say that four days after the robbery, the couple posed together with cash in their hands. On August 31, Mogan also posted images of him posing with a wad of cash in his mouth.
After the robbery, cops followed up several leads but none of them led to the thieves. But a tip received by Central Ohio Crime Stoppers led them to Mogan and his photos, according to The Circleville Herald.

How can anyone expect his crime to go undetected when he posts a photograph like the one below on his Facebook page, including boasting about where and how he got the money?
He didn't season his mouthful, either; so it was inevitable that his crime would ketchup with him . . .
