Suspect arrested after taunting cops on Facebook

A Maryland man wanted by police was arrested after he made taunting comments on facebook.

Police in Anne Arundel County started an initiative to catch suspects called “Wanted Wednesday,”  where photos of suspects are posted on the department’s facebook page.

Roger Ireland, 28,  commented on a photo of himself “Ya’all will never catch me.”

Police followed up on some tips and quickly found and arrested Ireland.

The “Wanted Wednesday” initiative began a few weeks ago.

About half of those wanted have since been arrested.

    “Police followed up on some tips and quickly found and arrested Ireland.” Gee what are the chances that the folks at Facebook and the suspect’s ISP were very helpful in directing law enforcement on where to find Mr. Ireland. Yet the IRS can’t retrieve Lois Lerner’s emails.
