Wanted suspect in custody after commenting on sheriff's office Facebook post

An Ohio man who was wanted on numerous warrants will not be on social media for a while. He is in police custody after he commented on a sheriff office's Facebook post that was seeking information for his arrest.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Andrew Dale Marcum was wanted for crimes that include burglary and safe cracking, abduction, assault, domestic violence and criminal endangering.

On Monday, the sheriff's office posted photos of Marcum in its featured warrant of the week post. Four hours after the post, Marcum commented on it saying, "I ain't tripping half of them don't even know me."

The sheriff's office responded to Marcum's comment and asked him, "If you could stop by the Sheriff's Office, that'd be great."

One day later, Marcum turned himself in.

The sheriff's office posted on their Facebook page: "Andrew Dale Marcum will be off Facebook temporarily, because there is no social media access in the Butler County Jail. He's turned himself in. Thanks to our Facebook and Twitter friends for helping turn up the heat."
