Florida man Travis Devonte Rice was arrested after he left personal identification at a crime scene and posted pictures on Facebook of stolen items.
Rice and one other man were seen on surveillance video breaking into Arion Motors on March 10. They stole files, license plates, 44 car keys and four cars. When Rice pulled out his cell phone to use as a flash light, he neglected to realize that his ID had fallen out of his pocket.
An investigator was taking fingerprints at the scene when dealership owner Adnan Radoncic found Rice’s ID.
“I don’t think you need to do that,” Radoncic said. “The bad guy left his [ID card] here, in plain sight.”
To make the job easier for Plantation police, Rice posted pictures of his stolen goods on Facebook. In one image, he dangles car keys from his mouth. In other image, he holds his crotch and dangles the keys in the air.
Rice faces charges of grand theft, probation violation and a burglary amounting to more than $1,000 in damages.
