Wanted Man Mocks Police On Facebook But Cops Have The Last Laugh

Word of advice: If you’re a wanted man and police post your picture on Facebook, don’t put your two cents in the comments. Just let it go.

An Ohio man is in police custody after a one-of-a-kind exchange with police on Facebook and Twitter, Fox 8 Cleveland reports.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo of Andrew Marcum, 21, who was wanted for multiple crimes including alleged burglary, assault and abduction on Facebook so that citizens could be on the lookout and provide information about his location. This is all common, standard procedure.

What’s not common is for the wanted man to comment on his post.

“I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me,” wrote a Facebook account that appears to belong to Marcum.

Marcum’s comment sparked a string of mocking posts from the sheriff’s office via social media.

“If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great,” the it replied in the comments on Facebook. “Hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask.”

But it didn’t stop with Facebook. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones began taunting Marcum on Twitter.

It hasn’t been confirmed, but the account believed to belong to Marcum appears legitimate. The profile picture looks the same as Marcum’s mugshot, and the cover photo is of a back tattoo that reads “Marcum.” The account has over 2,000 friends and has existed at least since last year.

The final Facebook post, where it all began, leaves police triumphant in this battle of online wits.
