Detroit couple accused of stealing unemployment money busted after Instagram posts.

A Detroit couple is now behind bars after they got busted for flaunting $138,000 on social media of unemployment money they stole.

 Micahia Taylor, 27, and Johnny Richardson, 25 were accused of working with someone contracted by the state who had access to unemployment money.

The two would post pictures on Instagram flaunting the stuff they bought with stolen money, a brand new car, jewelry, Louis Vuitton materials and more.

 The insider would override the fraud alert and cut a check. And they allegedly kept cutting checks to the tune of $2.5 million. 

Wire fraud is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison.
