Four thieves got caught breaking into cars in Rocklin, CA, after they posted when they were planning to hit again, on Instagram.

They were smashing car windows and taking out GPS units, wallets, and more.

A woman who had just had her credit cards stolen called the cops a few minutes after a big order went through at a nearby restaurant (Carl's Jr.)

Cops talked to the manager who said three young men had come through with a large order on a credit card. He knew one of them as a local high school student.

Cops found a post by the kid on Instagram showing pictures of their food and bragging that they'd be back in town the next night.

Cops spotted them when they came back to town and arrested all four for burglary and more.

You Can Own An Old Gold Mining Town For $225K

A gold-mining ghost town in northern California is up for sale for less than a quarter of a million dollars.

You get all 12-acres including several buildings, scenic grounds along the (Feather) River, and even an island, all for $225,000.

The deal includes all rights to minerals and timber from the town (Seneca) and has waterfront footage on both sides of the river.

It comes complete with a bar and a liquor license, which is rare being that it's located inside a National Forest.

The public access dirt road is one of the most scenic in the USA.

Gold was found there in 1851 prompting a boom of wild mining for years. The biggest nugget was found in 1942 and would be worth about $400,000 today.
