Crime and social media just don't mix. Remember the guy who logged into Facebook from the house he was robbing? Now, there's a story out there about a Las Vegas drug dealer who was caught after "oversharing" YouTube. The Internet is full of stories about dumb criminals and their stupid mistakes that get themselves caught, but this guy might have them all beat.

Las Vegas police became aware of Jason Pelletier's marijuana operation after witnessing him talk about it openly on YouTube. Using the username BuddyNuggets78, Pelletier posted updates about his pot growing business that he ran with his wife, Stephanie.

"Just doing another weekly update to show the progress at this point," says a YouTube post.

Pelletier isn't shy in the videos, either. He talks all about how many plants he has and the type of light setup he uses to grow them. Most of the videos have been removed from his account, but he still has over 2,000 subscribers. I hope YouTube fame was worth it, because he's probably going to be facing a prison term.
