NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — An alleged Florida fugitive was caught by authorities after the Pasco Sheriff’s Office posted his “wanted” photo on their Facebook page and the man commented on it.

Matthew Oliver saw his photo and began to defend himself in a series of comments, WTSP-TV reported.

“Matthew Oliver if you would like to discuss your active warrant, please call the Fugitive Warrants Unit at 813-235-6064,” a reply post from the Pasco Sheriff’s Office said.

However, Oliver didn’t call and instead kept commenting. He was later arrested after officers were waiting for him outside his apartment.
