FoxNews is reporting, 20-year-old Matthew Todakonzie of North Salt Lake posted more than 150 photos on a private Facebook page titled “graffiti.” He agreed to share them online with undercover detective who tracked down dozens that carried the unique tag, “HOKES.”

I guess this dude was extra proud of his work but let’s face it, it’s kind of stupid to post that anything illegal – especially defacing public property – on Facebook.

Police say 20-year-old Matthew Todakonzie of North Salt Lake posted more than 150 photos on a private Facebook page titled “graffiti.” He agreed to share them online with undercover detective who tracked down dozens that carried the unique tag, “HOKES.” North Salt Lake Police Sgt. Mitch Gwilliam told the Deseret News most taggers are very proud of what they do and want to be recognized for their work to a certain extent. Todakonzie’s recognition landed him in the Davis County Jail on Thursday for investigation of several counts of criminal mischief graffiti and criminal trespass.

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb..
