Always remember to crop photos of items you’re selling… especially if something illegal is in the background.
A Missouri man is in custody after accidentally posting a stash of meth on Facebook Marketplace. James Kertz posted photos of a catalytic converter on Facebook but forgot about a coffee table with meth and syringes that were clearly visible in the background.
Someone tipped off police, who then conducted a search and arrest at Kertz’s home. The man, who has several prior convictions, is now facing a charge of possessing a controlled substance.
