Jacob Tremblay, a young native of Melbourne, Australia, bragged and boasted about his latest shopping spree at Louis Vuitton, Ferrari, and various other expensive goods through social media application, Snapchat.
He had also added taunting messages on his snaps to his followers. One of them being, “Come get me, peasants!”
When Jacob had been out with his friends, only a few hours later his post, one of Jacob’s followers had robbed his family’s downtown eastside home. Harold Tremblay, father of Jacob, was the first to find that the home had been broken into and practically “destroyed”.
The intruder simply walked in and took what they wanted as Jacob had forgotten to set the alarm system and to lock the front door, according to police reports.
Mr. Harold states, “Everything was a mess. Random pieces of furniture missing, our bedrooms, spare rooms, and even our bathrooms had been rummaged through. I worked hard for my belongings – My wife, as well. Though my son may not be the brightest, this is absolutely ridiculous.”
The local police are still investigating and have yet to catch the culprit.
It’s said that Jacob’s Snapchat photos alone were enough to enrage his so-called friends and neighbours due to the extravagance of the items: leather-bound journals for a man that neighbours say “had little to no work-life”, gold bracelets and a tea set that they say would be “wasted on a soda drinker like Jacob”. The list goes on and on.
