Police 'like' wanted Pa. suspect's Facebook post

FREELAND, Pa. (AP) - Police in one Pennsylvania town really "liked" this Facebook post.

The (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader reports officers arrested 35-year-old Anthony Lescowitch less than two hours after he shared a wanted photo of himself and taunted police for not being able to find him.

Police in Freeland say Lescowitch shared the wanted bulletin minutes after they posted it on the department Facebook page Monday night. He was being sought on assault charges.

An officer pretending to be an attractive woman then messaged Lescowitch. Police say Lescowitch refused the offer of a drink but eventually agreed to meet for a cigarette, and was arrested at the agreed-upon location.

Lescowitch remained in the Luzerne County Jail Tuesday. Court records don't list a defense attorney for him.
