After sheriff’s deputies in Butler County, Ohio, posted images of a suspect wanted on burglary, assault and abduction charges on Facebook, officers believe the actual suspect replied to the post with a taunting message.
“I ain't tripping half of them don't even know me," the reply said.
Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said he believes it was Andrew Dale Marcum, the wanted suspect, who posted the response to mock officers. He called it a little “exciting” and warned Marcum in a press conference that he was “poking the bear.”
"I take that as a challenge, and I take this as a challenge," he said. "And as we speak this individual is taunting the police, and it's not good to taunt the police."
Jones also posted a hilarious personal message to Marcum on Twitter:
Hey Andrew Marcum we've got your room ready... pic.twitter.com/iYkANLD9hZ— Richard K. Jones (@butlersheriff) March 3, 2015
Then, less than 24 hours later, Jones tweeted a photo of Marcum’s embarrassing mugshot:

The sheriff got his man.
Marcum was arrested on several outstanding warrants for burglary, assault and abduction. He’s currently in his “room” in Butler County.
