If you’re wanted, posting a police department’s mugshot of yourself on your Facebook profile could shorten life as a fugitive, according to TimesLeader.com.

That’s just what happened to Anthony James Lescowitch, who police alleged posted the photo to taunt authorities. His life as a fugitive ended 45 minutes later when undercover officers took him into custody, Freeland police announced, fittingly enough, on the department’s Facebook page.

The Freeland Police Department posted a photo of Lescowitch at 9:19 p.m. Monday, noting that Lescowitch, 35, was wanted for aggravated assault and numerous other charges. The post asked that anyone knowing Lescowitch’s whereabouts to call police or 911, the TimesLeader.com reports.
