Criminal Mastermind? Not So Much... Fugitive Taunts Cops on Facebook
A Pennsylvania fugitive was caught (very, very quickly) after he taunted police on Facebook. Police reportedly busted 35-year-old Anthony James Lescowitch about 45 minutes after he reposted a "WANTED" bulletin about himself on Facebook and taunted the local cops.
The Freeland Police Department got right back on Facebook about two hours later with a new message: "CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER."
Lescowitch was wanted for aggravated assault and numerous other charges.
According to one local report, Lescowitch's taunts prompted an undercover officer to create a fake profile posing as an attractive woman. The officer was quickly messaging back and forth with Lescowitch.
He eventually let the "woman" know where he was and agreed to meet her outside and have a cigarette.
