A fugitive in Pennsylvania mocked the sheriff's office on Facebook — and led police right to her


When running from the law, it's probably best not to announce your location on social media

A wanted woman in Pennsylvania mocked the police in the comments section of a Facebook post, and led police right to her.

What's the story?

On March 27, the Greene County Sheriff's Office in Pennsylvania posted photos of their top 10 most wanted fugitives, including a woman named Chloe Jones who was wanted for failure to appear for plea court in a simple assault case.

Jones, under the name Chloe Tyler but using her own profile picture, commented on this post "Do you guys do pick up or delivery?" With four laughing emojis. She then proceeded to respond to people in the comments at least 30 different times.

But Jones made a crucial mistake while arguing with people in the comments section: She revealed her current location. As most people who are not Chloe Jones would probably expect, this led to her arrest.

After other commenters called her out and told her to turn herself in, Jones felt the need to inform them that she had only ignored her court appearance because she was at the trauma center at Ruby Memorial Hospital.

She also said that she had only been summoned to court for "a simple assault case ... a plea deal for a fight I had in jail with another girl."

Another commenter posted a screenshot from the Judicial System of Pennsylvania's website, showing 29 separate charges that had been filed against Jones since 2014, including driving without a license, driving an unregistered vehicle, reckless driving, theft, and harassment. According to judicial system records, she had been found guilty of eight of these charges and pleaded guilty to another 14.

How did the sheriff's office respond?

On Monday, the sheriff's office posted on their Facebook that "Ms. Chloe Jones and her witty comments are taking a hiatus from our Facebook comments section due to the jail not having internet for her to use."
