Facebook pics of guns lead to felon's arrest


UPI News Service, 07/10/2013 

Authorities in Florida said photos on a convicted felon's Facebook page led to his arrest on firearms charges.

Alain Ramirez, 28, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Federal agents said Ramirez was arrested this year when they received a tip he was possessing firearms, despite being banned due to a 2008 conviction for felony burglary.

Agents looked at Ramirez's Facebook page and discovered photos of him posing with firearms at his mother's Margate home in 2011 and firing a pistol last year at a gun range in Pembroke Park.

Ramirez is due to be sentenced Sept. 20 and faces as much as 20 years in prison.
