Man Arrested After Replying To His Own Most Wanted Ad On Social Media


Thanks to the marvels of social media, yet another criminal has been arrested.

Butler County Sheriff’s Office located on the outskirts of Cincinnati, Ohio, lately put a ‘most wanted’ post on Facebook seeking information on Andrew Dale Marcum.

The 21-year-old, Andrew Dale Marcum, was wanted on “numerous warrants”. He was said to have had a history of abduction, safe-cracking, abduction, burglary, criminal endangering and domestic violence.

Luckily Andrew Dale Marcum did all the hard work for the authorities.

Andrew Dale Marcum, or at least a man with the exact same name and a profile photo that remarkably resembled him replied to the message posted by police on the Facebook.
