Running and hiding from the cops is one thing, but taunting them about it publicly is another. Today’s bail bond blog post is about a fugitive that turned to social media to taunt the cops and paid the ultimate price.
This past week in central Maine, a man was playing a game of hide and seek with the local police. The strangest thing about this particular game, was that the man was posting his location on social media for all to see while he was hiding. Little did he know that the cops were also watching his social media accounts. According to reports the man posted on Snapchat that he was home in Fairfield. The police were tipped off to the information and showed up at the man’s house to arrest him. When they couldn’t find him, the man decided to give them a clue (unknowingly of course). The man posted again on Snapchat telling everyone that the cops were searching for him and he was hiding in the cabinet. Minutes later the police found the man in the cabinet. The lesson here is that social media is not like Las Vegas. What happens on social media does not stay on social media.
