If you’re a known criminal with active warrants, posting a photo to Facebook taunting the police, on their own page, probably isn’t the smartest thing to do.
However, that’s exactly what one Orem, Utah man did. He posted the above photo with the caption, “What are this marranos doing in my hood They know we keep it Active eFe up”.
The Orem PD saw the photo and not only responded in a hilarious Facebook post, but to add insult to injury they tracked down the suspect on his active warrants and put him behind bars.
Here is the text of the PD post in case you can’t see the embed.
“We had one of our fine citizens post this to his FB page……..
1. We didn’t know the 7-11 was your “Hood”, which is super gangsta because nothing makes you look tougher than throwing up gangs signs while sipping on a banana and blueberry slurpee.
2. We knew who he was and knew that he had several warrants for his arrest.
3. The City of Orem is our “Hood”.
4. “Daaaaaaang Daniel, back at it again with the white vans”
So, since he obviously wanted our attention, what else could we do but give it to him. The 2nd picture is him throwing up some new gang signs (you can’t see them in the second pic because he is wearing cuffs) with Officer Larsen.
And……..when we found him he was with his other homie who also had warrants. Yes a 2fer!
