Wanted Man Caught After Post On Md. Sheriff’s Facebook
EASTON, Md. (AP) — A man wanted in Maryland for probation violations has been locked up after criticizing the sheriff’s office on its Facebook page.
The Star Democrat reports that 33-year-old Colby Gilliam is in custody in South Carolina. Gilliam posted on the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page in response to a post about a worker struck by a falling paint can June 4.
The sheriff’s office wrote that a worker fell on the bridge’s westbound span. Gilliam responded that the man was on one of the catwalks underneath the road and chided “get the facts before posting.”
Authorities responded: “Thank you Colby By the way we still have a warrant for your arrest Checkout our Most Wanted Page.”
Facebook users then called in with tips on Gilliam’s current location.
