A 22-year-old Chicago man who allegedly stole a pizza by holding delivery workers at gunpoint has Facebook to thank for his being collared.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jamokae Smith allegedly pointed a gun at two people delivering a pizza in the 5000 block of West Wabansia Avenue while a co-conspirator grabbed the pizza and $13 in cash and ran off on Nov. 9.
