A Florida man was taken into custody on Tuesday after local authorities found that he had posted his own “Wanted” poster as his Facebook profile picture.

Stuart police arrested Mack Yearwood on two outstanding warrants from Citrus County. They tracked Mr. Yearwood down on social media only to find that he had proudly displayed his “Wanted of the Week” poster as his profile photo, The Palm Beach Post reported.

Mr. Yearwood is now facing additional charges after a bag of marijuana fell out of his pocket while he was being arrested Tuesday, police said.

“I just thought, ‘There’s always somebody out there,’” Stuart Police Sgt. Heather Rothe told a local ABC News affiliate.

“I did chuckle, yes,” she said.

Mr. Yearwood was wanted by Citrus County authorities for violation of probation on two counts of battery, police said.
