There are a lot of stories about people sharing too much on Facebook. In the case of 10 alleged gang members from the Bronx, their posts could put them in prison.

Police say members of the "280" drug gang shared pictures of stacks of cash and fancy cars, apparently used to recruit new members. Instead, the pictures just drew the attention of police.

The 280 gang is accused of selling crack cocaine, heroin and other drugs around 168th Street and College Avenue.

The 10 members of the gang are all charged with multiple counts of conspiracy-related shootings and other violence.
