One Ohio couple has been arrested for allegedly robbing a bank — and publicly flaunting their stolen cash all over the place.

John Mogan, 28, had apparently just been released from jail when he walked into the Savings Bank in Ashville on Aug. 24 and supposedly slipped the teller a note demanding money, which she then handed over, according to Fox 35.

The police were tipped off when Mogan posted Facebook photos of himself and 24-year-old girlfriend Ashley Duboe posing with the alleged stolen money. Which was, you know, maybe not the greatest idea ever.

Once the photos were posted, it was all over. The police were able to locate the suspects and arrest them for the robbery (and hopefully for taking such tacky selfies).

Both Duboe and Mogan have been charged with robbery and theft, and are being held on a $250,000 bond.

Mogan had previously been serving five years in prison for a previous bank robbery.

Sheesh. For someone who had robbed a bank before, you’d think he would have known better?
