‘Most wanted’ criminal taunts cops on Facebook – Then, she gets very bad news hours later
A Pennsylvania woman was arrested after she taunted authorities on a Facebook post about her being a “Most Wanted” fugitive.
But her attempt to taunt them backfired when she was arrested after giving up her location.
Chloe Jones was placed on the Greene County Sheriff’s Office ‘Top Ten Most Wanted List,’ on March 27 after she didn’t appear in court on assault charges.
WDTV reported that she commented on the office’s Facebook post about the listing, asking, “Do you do pick up or delivery??”
According to the report, she then began arguing with other commenters on Facebook and mentioned she was in Morgantown, adding that she was in Ruby Memorial Hospital.
Residents in Greene County and Monongalia County gave tips to officers, who later found her, according to the report.
“Ms. Chloe Jones and her witty comments are taking a hiatus from our Facebook comments section due to the jail not having internet for her to use,” said the sheriff’s department on April 8.
It also said “thank you” to Greene and Monongalia counties for the tips.
Those tips, it added, led “to her arrest.”
The sheriff’s office’s Facebook post drew a number of comments from local residents.
“My guess is that the Greene County Sheriff’s Office does pickup and delivery. They picked her up and delivered her straight to jail! Way to go guys,” wrote one person.
Another joked, “Guess they did pick up.”
Another added, “Thank god you took this criminal master mind down. Superman can rest easy now that you have lex luthor daughter behind bars and foiled her plan of world domination and got the kryptonite secured.”
“Not the brightest bulb in the package, was she?” another asked.
Man Responds to ‘Wanted’ Poster in Washington
In December, a Washington state man and a local police department had a humorous exchange on Facebook after the man commented on his own “wanted” post, telling them to “calm down.”
“Wanted Wednesday! Anthony Akers (38) is wanted by the Department of Corrections for Failure to Comply. If you have any information please call 509-628-0333,” wrote Richmond Police on the social media website. Akers replied in the comments, “Calm down, I’m going to turn myself in,” according to the Tri-City Herald.
Police then responded that they would even offer him a free ride to the station.
“Hey Anthony! We haven’t seen you yet. Our business hours are 8:00 am—5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Of course if you need a ride you can call non-emergency (509-628-0333) and we will pick you up,” police said in response.
“Thank you, tying up a couple loose ends since I will probably be in there [for] a month. Should be there in the next 48 hours,” Akers then told them.
“Dear Anthony, is it us? Last Wednesday we reached out to you as ‘wanted’. You replied and even said you were going to turn yourself in. We waited, but you didn’t show. After you stood us up, we reached out again- this time offering you a ride,” police said.
“You replied and said you needed 48 hours. The weekend came and went. We are beginning to think you are not coming,” officials said.
