A Georgia man was arrested after wondering on a sheriff’s office social media site why he was not among the county’s most wanted fugitives.
Christopher Spaulding is being held on two charges of felony probation violation, WSB-TV reported. His arrest was apparently made easier thanks to a response Spaulding allegedly made on the Facebook page of the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office earlier this week.
The post, which updated its “most wanted” list for November, caused Spaulding to allegedly respond in the comments section.
“How about me,” the comment read.
“You are correct,” deputies responded. “You have two warrants. We are on the way.”
Spaulding was arrested several hours later.
On Thursday, the sheriff’s office posted a photograph of Spaulding after his arrest.
“We appreciate you for your assistance in your capture!” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. “By not being on this list does not mean our fugitive unit is not looking for you if you have an active warrant.”
