Dumb criminal: Wanted man turns himself in after commenting on Facebook police post

BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – Butler County Sheriff’s deputies confirm the man who responded to his own wanted post has turned himself in.

Deputies were to locate a man wanted for several warrants, including assault and burglary.

Investigators posted images and a description of Andrew Dale Marcum on Monday.

Later in the day, a man by that name with the same profile picture as posted by the sheriff’s office commented on the post.

He said quote: “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me.”
