A couple in Ohio both face felony charges of third degree robbery and fifth degree theft after they posted pictures online pretending to eat a wad of cash after allegedly robbing a bank.

Authorities in Ashville, Ohio, claim John E Mogan II and his girlfriend Ashley Duboe possibly gave themselves away a few weeks later with their Facebook posts.

"Good decision-making isn't his strong suit," Lt. Dale Parish of the Pickaway County Sheriff's Office said of Mogan.

The two were in custody  on $250,000 bonds and lawyers haven't been identified for them yet, Circleville Municipal Court official Molly Tootle said.

On August 24, Mogan allegedly walked into a branch of The Savings Bank in Ashville, a community of about 4,000 people some 20 miles south of Columbus.

This was just over a month after Mogan got out of jail on another bank robbery charge.

This time, Mogan allegedly handed a note to the bank teller, who then handed him cash. The suspect then took off on foot.

Images later appeared on Mogan and Duboe's joint Facebook account in the first week of September.

All of them feature Mogan, who sports a bevy of tattoos including "Loyalty's Thin" on one cheek and "Betrayal's Thick" on the other, and big chunks of cash.
