Suspect Taunted Police on Facebook While They Searched for Him… Then THIS Shut Him Up!


A wanted felon in Polk County, Florida, responded to a posting by the Sheriff’s department looking for information on his whereabouts on Facebook. But it looks like the Sheriff got the last word.

21-year-old Logan Hale, who has been to jail five separate times already, was wanted in an armed burglary and grand theft case. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office posted a picture of Hale, alerting the public and asking for any information.

The suspect himself went on Facebook to respond, taunting police by posting “HELLO, here I am” and needling deputies who “are frustrated” because “I am unable to be located.”

But after offering a $500 reward for information leading to Hale’s arrest, the suspect was quickly caught and sent back to jail.

Sheriff Grady Judd couldn’t resist taking a swipe at the punk they had just apprehended, posting this epic poem in tribute to Logan Hale:

“Logan Hale, you are on your way to jail. Your attempts to hide were to no avail. Maybe you’ll make bail. Either way, your Facebook taunts were and ‘epic fail'”

Judd told the folks at Fox and Friends that the $500 reward quickly turned Hale’s Facebook ‘friends’ against him.

He added, “If you run, you’re just gonna go to jail tired.”

Sharp-eyed readers might remember Judd from a previous post here at Headline Politics.

In June, Judd was ordered by an atheist activist group to stop giving sermons at his local church in uniform. Rather than back down, Judd insisted he would continue to deliver church sermons where he sees fit, and how he sees fit.
