Tools

By WSIL Manager

FREELAND, PA - We head over to Pennsylvania for our Friday Fail story where Facebook has taken down another criminal.

Police in Freeland, Pennsylvania made a post last week asking for the public's help finding Anthony Lescowitch.

The 35-year-old was wanted on several charges, including aggravated assault.

Lescowitch saw the post and decided to share it, taunting police for not being able to find him.

Police saw he had shared it, so they got creative.
     
An officer pretending to be an attractive woman messaged him and set up a meeting.
 
Long story short, Lescowitch was in custody 45 minutes later, according to a police department's Facebook post.
     
As of  Friday that had more than a thousand likes and nearly 400 shares.
 
For sharing his own wanted poster on Facebook, then getting caught, Anthony Lescowitch from northeastern Pennsylvania is today's Friday Fail.
