Fugitive Agrees To Turn Self In Once Facebook Post Gets 15,000 ‘Likes’
In Connecticut, social media may actually help get a wanted man into police custody.
The Torrington Police Department said Jose Simms, who is wanted on several outstanding warrants, has agreed to turn himself in to the police if they can get 15,000 “likes” on a Facebook post about him.
Police are asking the public to “like” the post, which features Simms’s wanted poster.
“But if you know where either of these guys are, you could always let us know that too, it’d save everyone from the suspense of the 15K,” the post on Facebook said.
