Social Media Crime: Fugitive Posts Facebook Comment On His Wanted Poster


Crime Feed protip: Do not like, comment or share your own wanted poster on Facebook.

Like me, you probably eagerly await seeing who will comment your new Facebook photos. You also probably troll around for new pictures or mentions of yourself. It’s simply human nature. Don’t pretend you are above it.

This mild narcissism becomes problematic when the Sheriff posts your wanted poster on their Facebook page. They do not have a crush on you. They do not think your hair looks especially great. And they definitely have not noticed that you lost three pounds.

Not everyone understands these basic truths.

Meet Andrew Dale Marcum of Hamilton, Ohio. The not-so-social-savvy 21-year-old is accused of safe cracking, abduction, assault and domestic violence. Andrew noticed his wanted poster on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page and decided he needed to add his own caption. Andrew quipped, “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me.” Embracing the digital age, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office chimed in, commenting, “Andrew Marcum – If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great.”
