In what would possibly pass for the dumbest story ever, a criminal has been arrested after he liked his own ‘Wanted’ mugshot on Facebook social platform.
Levi Charles Reardon who is on the run for committing a crime made himself simply available to his captors after his display of foolery.
Perhaps he was drunk or down with a related feeling for him to have clicked the ‘Like’ button after he clearly saw himself on the ‘Wanted’ mugshot on a Seattle-area police Facebook page.
Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers posted Reardon’s mugshot on Friday, April 3, 2015 noting that he was wanted for forgery.
The Facebook group soon noticed that Reardon had Liked the mugshot photo from his own account and took a screenshot of the social media gaffe before Reardon got to redact the Like.

The screenshot was posted to Facebook thereafter and Reardon was arrested on Friday, April 24, 2015.
He will be due for arraignment on Thursday, May 7, 2015.
