Criminal: "Get 'likes' and I'll turn myself in"

Is this how we’re catching criminals now?

A Connecticut man has agreed to turn himself in if police Facebook post gets 15,000 likes. Police say there are seven arrest warrants for 29-year-old fugitive Jose Simms, who is believed to be somewhere in New York.

Lt. Brett Johnson posted on the department's Facebook page on Wednesday that Sims had contacted him through Facebook and agreed to turn himself in if the post containing his poster gets 15,000 "likes." Johnson says he negotiated Simms down from 20,000 "likes." Jose even commented on the post.
