Authorities in Pennsylvania say say they were able to catch a wanted woman after she engaged in a social media conversation about her status with police.
Reports indicate it started with 23-year-old Chloe Jones’ Facebook post aimed at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office in response to her addition to its 10 most-wanted list. Facing charges related to assault, she reportedly failed to show up for a related court hearing.
“Do you guys do pickup or delivery?” the Facebook post read, as reported by NBC News.
Her post was reportedly met with a range of responses, many of which urged her to turn herself in to police.
Jones went into further detail in replies to some comments, claiming that she was unable to make it to court because she was at a hospital in West Virginia. She noted that the earlier Facebook post had been tagged from the Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown.
Interim Sheriff Marcus Simms credited social media as a “valuable asset” in securing the arrest of the fugitive at a Morgantown residence last week. He added that tips from multiple states also helped narrow down the search.
He added that the fugitive “and her witty comments are taking a hiatus from our Facebook comments section” since she won’t have access to the internet while behind bars.
