Police ‘like’ suspect’s Facebook post

Officers in Freeland arrested Anthony Lescowitch, 35, on Monday night, less than two hours after he shared a wanted photo of himself and taunted police for not being able to find him.


Lescowitch shared the wanted bulletin minutes after Freeland police posted it on the department Facebook page Monday night, authorities said. He was being sought on assault-related charges.

An officer pretending to be an attractive woman then messaged Lescowitch, according to police. Lescowitch refused the offer of a drink but eventually agreed to meet for a cigarette, and was arrested at the agreedupon location.

After the arrest, police posted this message: “CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER.”
