This fool didn’t think his “look-at-my-money-and-bling” photos on MySpace were gangster enough, so he backed it up with an update about the $250k he made last year. And guess who was stalking his profile.
According to one-time, social networking sites have become one of the best resources for breaking up gangs, solving sex crimes and tracking down stolen goods.
It wasn’t a pretty picture for Crown Heights heroin dealer Tyrell “Handsome Rell” Blue, whose MySpace page featured a photo of himself with a wad of cash and a claim that he earned $250,000 a year.
That information was used against him in July when the office of city drug czar Bridget Brennan charged him and five others with multiple counts of selling narcotics.
“It’s almost become unfair,” said a law-enforcement source. “Facebook and MySpace are killing these guys.”
Prosecutors said Facebook revelations were “instrumental” in busting up a ring of drug dealers who sold coke, ecstasy and designer dope at nightclubs like Rebel and the Roseland Ballroom last year.
SMH. Didn’t Biggie tell them “real bad boys move in silence?”
