"We like it when dumb criminals assist us in our investigation," Ambridge police Chief James Mann told the Beaver County Times, which first reported the arrest........LOLOL!!
Mann told The Associated Press that the suspect, 22-year-old Donald Harrison, had been living in the borough about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh when he was charged with assaulting a woman and refusing to let her leave her apartment after an argument on Jan. 24.
An hour after the woman called police, police learned that Harrison, who is originally from Spartansburg, South Carolina, posted the Facebook message, "IT'S TIME TO LEAVE PA."
Yeah.....because everybody knows that the police have absolutely positively no idea what Facebook is!
Police couldn't find him right away, but Mann said the woman called him Sunday afternoon after she noticed the Facebook selfie with the message saying, "OMW TO SPARTANSBURG SC SAY A PRAYER FOR ME."
Mann said the picture appeared to show Harrison sitting in a bus or airplane and, acting on a hunch, he called the Greyhound bus terminal in Pittsburgh and learned a bus to Spartansburg had left 15 minutes earlier. After learning it would stop in Youngstown, Ohio, Mann explained the situation to Greyhound and arranged for Youngstown police to arrest Harrison on a warrant he faxed them.
"I guess when the bus pulled in they instructed the driver to keep the door shut until police got there, and the rest is history," Mann said. "We've been on 'World's Dumbest Criminals' for a couple of things, but his actions certainly qualifies for another episode" of the reality show on truTV.
The show focuses on the dumb but funny things criminal suspects sometimes do that get themselves caught. But Mann said there's nothing funny about what Harrison allegedly did to the victim.
Among other things, Harrison body-slammed her several times during the 12-hour ordeal before he left, and she has several fractured vertebrae, Mann said.
As a result, police expect to add a charge of aggravated assault when he is extradited from Ohio later this week.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Harrison, who is charged with simple assault, unlawful restraint and reckless endangerment, among other charges.
Deputies in Richmond County, Georgia, arrested Anneliese Young on Jan. 27, after she entered a CVS store and an employee allegedly saw her put a bottle of "Sexiest Fantasies" perfume into her purse, The Smoking Gun reports.
Young allegedly walked out of the drugstore without paying for the $7.39 body spray. She was followed by an employee, the Metro reported.
The employee then called the Richmond County Sheriff's Office and told officers she wanted to press charges against the octogenarian, the Daily Mail reports.
Young was taken to the Richmond County Jail and booked on a charge of larceny and later released.
Young is accused of stealing the brand's "Fireworks" scent, which is described by the manufacturer as "a burst of sensuality as plump wild strawberries, succulent peaches and voluptuous vanilla come together."
