Facebook Photos Help Cops Nab Bank Robbers

If not for facebook it may have taken police hours to identify the guy with facial tattoos.

SEPTEMBER 24–A couple arrested this week for robbing an Ohio bank posted photos to Facebook showing them posing with stacks of cash in the days following the crime, police report.

John Mogan, 28, and Ashley Duboe, 24, are charged with the August 24 robbery of a bank in Ashville, a village 20 miles south of Columbus.

Investigators allege that Mogan walked into the bank and gave a note demanding money to a teller, who then handed over cash. The above surveillance photo shows the hoodie-wearing robber leaving the bank with a stack of currency in his hands.

Mogan is a convicted felon who was just released from prison after serving about five years for robbing a bank in Lancaster, a city 20 miles east of Ashville. A female accomplice was also arrested in connection with Mogan’s July 2010 robbery of a Fairfield National Bank branch.

Mogan began serving a three-year parole term immediately following his July 19 release from an Ohio state lockup. The heavily tattooed Mogan has the phrases “Loyalty’s Thin” and “Betrayal’s Thick” on opposite cheeks.
