Man sharing ‘Wanted status’ about himself on Facebook arrested 45 minutes later

London, Jan. 23: A man evading arrest in Pennsylvania apparently lost his common sense when he shared the police’s ‘Wanted’ message about himself on Facebook, only to be arrested 45 minutes later.

Anthony James Lescowitch Jr. made the blunder when he shared the alleged message on his own Facebook profile page and the police didn’t take long to trace him down.

According to metro.co.uk, the Freeland Police Department wanted Lescowitch in connection with an assault on a man in July last year, and they posted the wanted bulletin on their Facebook page and barely 3 minutes later, the suspect reposted the picture of himself.

Foolishness knew no bounds when he wrote ‘lol i f***** love it, A**HOLE’ underneath the picture of himself and posted it ‘accidentally’ for ‘public view’.

His post even received two ‘likes’ and was commented on by a number of his friends, some of whom wished him good luck.

The report said that investigating officer T.J. Rentschler, began chatting online with Lescowitch about the post, disguising as an attractive woman, and gathered key information about the suspect and arranged to meet him for a cigarette.

The police was swift in its action and arrested him from the location. (ANI)
