Most criminals would go into hiding after seeing their own “Wanted” ad on Facebook.

But Andrew Dale Marcum of Ohio is not most criminals.

Marcum was wanted for numerous warrants in Butler County, Ohio, and the county’s Facebook page for the sheriff’s office featured him as their “warrant of the week” Monday.

 

After seeing his “Wanted” ad, Marcum responded with a casual comment, as dumb criminals do:

“I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me,” he posted.

To which the sheriff’s office responded, “If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great.”

Richard Jones, the sheriff of Butler County, didn’t take too kindly to Marcum‘s cavalier response. So he posted this on Twitter:

Soon after, Marcum turned himself in.

His mugshot says it all.
