Lol. Man Likes His Own Wanted Poster On Facebook, Gets Arrested
If you have committed crimes or are wanted for crimes, shouldn’t you stay off social media? Not Levi Charles Reardon (pictured). He was wanted for theft and forgery in Cascade County, Montana, and was perusing Facebook when he stumbled upon his own wanted poster on the local Crime Stoppers page. He then decided the best course of action would be to “like” his own wanted poster, chuckle to himself (speculation), and keep scrolling. lol.
Reardon was subsequently arrested without incident Friday morning last week and had his initial court appearance on felony forgery and theft charges earlier this week.
According to the Great Falls Tribune, Reardon was held on $2,500 bond and in fact had not one but two warrants out for his arrest. His arraignment is scheduled for May 7.
It seems Reardon was a suspect in a recent case involving a stolen wallet and personal checks. Again showing his intelligent side, Reardon attempted to cash four of the stolen checks after making them out in his own name. He had spoken previously with an officer regarding the theft after having been notified that checks made out in his name had been reported as fraudulent.
He is not the first wanted criminal to do this. Many have done it in the past but just recently, a woman posted a selfie of herself in a dress she stole. And yep, she was subsequently arrested.
