A suspect foolishly shared a police Facebook post about his status as a wanted man … and got arrested immediately after.
Police in Freeland, Pennsylvania have been looking for Anthony James Lescowitch since July 14 for allegedly committing several crimes, which include aggravated assault. On Monday night, the department posted the following message:
For reasons best known to him, Lescowitch shared the post, which the police quickly noticed. According to USA Today, a police officer pretending to be an attractive woman then messaged the suspect, inviting him over for a drink and cigarettes. He was eventually arrested at the agreed-upon location 45 minutes later.
After the arrest, Freeland Police Department updated their status:
Lescowitch has been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct among other charges, and is scheduled to attend a preliminary hearing on January 29.
