Man shares his own 'Wanted' pic on Facebook... gets caught 45mins later

Not the world’s brightest star.

THE POLICE DEPARTMENT of Freeland, Pennsylvania has found a great new way to snare criminal suspects on Facebook. Unfortunately, it depends on them being epically foolish.

Yesterday, they shared a photo on their official page of wanted man Anthony Lescowitch:

Anthony then shared the status ON HIS OWN FACEBOOK PAGE.

He was captured by police within 45 minutes and arrested. The police department weren’t shy about showing their glee, posting this status just two hours after the first:

How exactly did they get him? Well, according to the Times-Leader, an undercover officer:

used a Facebook profile of a fictitious attractive woman to engage in online conversation with Lescowitch through Facebook for about a half hour, pretending to be interested in meeting him.

He at first turned down an offer of a drink, but then the officer told him: “The least you can do is come out and have a cigarette with me”.

Lescowitch was arrested “without incident”. But with a very red face, we hope.
