As most of us know, sharing every photo of yourself for the world to see on Facebook is not necessarily a great idea.  Apparently one man didn’t understand the reasoning behind this faux pas.

Anthony Lescowitch was captured a mere 45 minutes after posting an image of himself on Facebook.  How did this happen?

Anthony Lescowitch found a wanted poster of himself on the Freeland Police Department’s Facebook page.  The image was posted at 9:19pm on Monday night. The post by the Freeland Police Department read, “***WANTED*** Anthony James Lescowitch DOB 06/23/1978 by Freeland Police in for Aggravated Assault and numerous other charges, anyone knowing the suspects where abouts is asked to call police at 570-636-0111 or 911.”

Police stated that the same wanted image was shared by Anthony Lescowitch on his own Facebook page only minutes after they had posted it.  Included with Lescowitch’s post were taunts towards the police.

Undercover officers used a fake Facebook profile of an attractive woman to begin messaging Lescowitch, asking him out for a drink.  After declining the offer, officers reportedly messaged, “The least you can do is come out and have a cigarette with me.”  Anthony Lescowitch agreed.

Upon arriving at the designated location, officers arrested Lescowitch.  After the arrest was made, and less than 2 hours after the original post was made, another image of Anthony Lescowitch went up on the Freeland Police Department’s Facebook page.  This one captioned, “CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER.”

Anthony Lescowitch was wanted to aggravated assault among numerous other charges.  He had been eluding arrest since fall, and was also wanted by Luzerne County Probation.
