TAZEWELL, Va. (AP) — A Maryland fugitive is in custody after his girlfriend’s “like” of a Virginia sheriff’s Facebook page led authorities to him.

The Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office says Dyllan Otto Naecker, 29, was captured Wednesday at his girlfriend’s residence near Bluefield.

Police determined the girlfriend’s identity after she “liked” the sheriff’s office’s Facebook page. The sheriff’s office didn’t identify the woman but said she will be charged with harboring a fugitive and obstruction of justice.

The sheriff’s office in Queen Anne’s County, Md., says Naecker is a registered sex offender who was living in Grasyon, Md. Police learned in late July that Grayson had left his residence and possibly fled to the Bluefield area.
