Stupid Criminals: Woman Posts Video on How to Make Meth on Facebook

K-BAT, September 19, 2014

In this edition of Stupid Criminals, we find a woman who thinks social media is the place to put videos of how to do something highly illegal.

According to KTVI-TV in St. Louis, 36-year-old Jennifer Harrington of Jefferson County, Missouri posted a video on Facebook last week that showed her and her boyfriend making meth.

She even narrated the video like it was a how-to guide for cooking meth at home.

Someone tipped off police who looked at the video and realized Jennifer really was in a meth lab making meth. So they started trying to track her down by going to her friends’ houses looking for her.

They didn’t find her right away, but they did wind up busting several of her friends for using or making meth during their search.

A police spokesman says her friends, “weren’t very happy that [she] had posted this video and was bringing this investigation down on all of them.”

They finally tracked Jennifer down when she showed up for a meeting with her parole officer.
