Do Not Pose With Obama If You're Running From The Law
A photo of President Obama's wax figure that had been posted on Facebook this week has led to the arrest of a wanted Sicilian drug dealer who had been laying low until recently.
Back in 2008, 27-year-old Michele Grosso had skipped his hometown of Taormina as cops had sought to arrest him for peddling drugs. The cops had apparently been been track of him via his Facebook page.
About two weeks ago, he posted the above picture of himself posed with President Obama's wax copy at Madame Tussauds. Other shots of him included London's famous double-decker buses, posing at landmarks and, most importantly to police, at a restaurant where he waited tables.
It didn't take long for Interpol to finally track down his not-so-secret hideout in an operation called "Big Ben." Grasso is now being extradited to Italy, where he will face new charges.
