A New Jersey man’s bone-headed Snapchat post featuring guns and money led to his arrest on drug and weapons charges. 24-year-old Taishaun Cosme posted photos to Snapchat of a firearm and cash in his car and investigators were able to use the social media platform’s geo-location function to track him down later that day. Cosme was located by detectives while driving in Lakewood, where he was found in possession of a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun with several hollow-point bullets and a “significant amount of cocaine” after a court-authorized search. Police also found a digital scale and other paraphernalia indicating Cosme was involved in drug distribution. Detectives from the Barnegat Crime Reduction Unit alerted the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office to Cosme’s Snapchat activity, sparking an investigation involving a county Narcotics Strike Force and four local police departments. Cosme — who was charged with counts including possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and unlawful possession of a weapon — was booked into the Ocean County Jail, where he remained Tuesday ahead of a detention hearing.
