This criminal just wants to be liked.
A CT police department says they negotiated the terms of surrender of one wanted fugitive in the most trendy way possible: He agreed to turn himself in if 15,000 people like his wanted poster on Facebook.
Police say there are seven arrest warrants for 29-year-old fugitive Jose Simms, who is believed to be somewhere in NY after failing to appear in court.
According to the Facebook post, Simms wanted 20,000 likes, while police proposed 10,000; in the spirit of compromise, they ultimately agreed on the figure precisely between the two.
Police Lt. Brett Johnson posted on the department's Facebook page Wednesday that Sims had contacted him through the social media site and agreed to turn himself in if his wanted post got enough likes.
Torrington Police, in CT, posted the details of the odd deal on Tuesday, explaining that an officer got in contact with the suspect over Facebook.
"It will be hard but is doable", the department wrote in a light-hearted post.Читайте также: Warriors became 'unbeatable' with Durant, says Green
"While you're at it share it, Tweet it, Instagram, Snapchat it, WUPHF it", the lieutenant quipped in a reference to hit TV show "The Office".
Police added in another comment that officers "have a sneaking suspicion Simms is in NY and inaccessible to us...so it'd be great to have him turn himself in".
They urged anyone with information on Simms' whereabouts to contact the police and "save everyone from the suspense". "But a cool way to go about this situation.Try it more I say to Torrington PD".
