Florida Man Busted After Posing For Instagram Photo While Holding Guns

A man from Lake Worth, Fla., was arrested and booked on 142 charges after posing for photos while holding guns, and then posting them on his Instagram feed.

According, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating Depree Johnson, 19, in connection with a series of jewelry thefts and burglaries from senior communities.

When police got a hold of information that led to Johnson’s Lake Worth home, they recovered about $250,000 worth of "numerous pieces of jewelry ... (including) watches, charms, necklaces and loose diamonds, as well as two stolen firearms," according to a police report.

WPBF 25 News reports that Johnson is facing 142 counts of possession of weapons/ammunition by a convicted felon, among other charges.

When investigators asked Johnson what his occupation was as they were writing the arrest report, he replied, "Thief."

Johnson's Instagram feed called "Duce22ceritfied," which has since been deleted, includes photos of himself posing with guns, cash and what seems to be a joint.

He remains at Palm Beach County Jail where he is being held on a $60,000 bail, according the Sun Sentinel.
