Fugitive posts info on Facebook that enables police to find himThe last entry on Christopher K. Crego's Facebook page already has been removed. It was a thank-you note from the City of Lockport Police Department.
"It was due to your diligence in keeping us informed that now you are under arrest," Capt. Richard Podgers, chief of detectives, typed onto the page. He said he also is considering nominating Crego for "America's Dumbest Criminal."
Crego, 39, formerly of Sunset Drive, posted online social networking pages that picture guns, information about his criminal cases and boasts that he has served time.Recently, officers had been hearing about his Facebook and MySpace accounts. When they checked Crego's pages on those sites, police found everything they needed, Podgers said.
"It was actually perfect," he said. "He gave us his address, where he worked, he actually filled out everything. I couldn't have done better [investigating]."
On his MySpace page, Crego writes that he majored in "Buss. Mgmt." at Niagara County Community College and minored in "Cuttin Class"; he writes he graduated from Lockport High School in 1988, majoring in "art" and minoring in "lunch."

That's a bright one. Bragging about criminal activity in a public place......may as well have gone in front of the courthouse with a loudspeaker."Where liberty dwells, there is my country."
