(CBS/WDJT) MILWUKEE - Authorities say a 23-year-old father who has never made a single child support payment for his 2-year-old son was busted after posting photos of himself on Facebook holding wads of cash.

According to CBS affiliate WDJT, Christopher Robinson could face several felony charges for failing to pay support.

"It's a great investigative tool for us because it gives us a glimpse into their real lives that our targets may be living," Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern says about the social site.

Lovern says the photos may be enough to lead to an arrest, and at the very least would strengthen the case against Robinson. He says the photos allowed his office to apply to the court for a search warrant, and a court ordered Facebook to allow them full-access to Robinson's account.
