BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

UPDATE: Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones announced on his twitter account Tuesday night that the Butler County Sheriff's Office had arrested Andrew Dale Marcum. According to the Butler County Sheriff's Office Facebook page (where else?) Marcum turned himself in to authorities Tuesday evening.

Below is the original story.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office took to the information superhighway to find one of its most wanted, and was surprised by a response.

On Monday, Butler Co. Sheriff's Office posted the 'warrant of the week' on its Facebook page. Andrew Dale Marcum is wanted for burglary, abduction, assault and criminal endangering according to the post.

A Facebook account that is allegedly Andrew Marcum's responded to the dubious honor.

"I ain't tripping half of them don't even know me," Marcum replied in the comments section.

Realizing that finding this suspect might be easier than originally thought, the Butler County Sheriff's Office went for broke replying to the comment.

"Andrew Marcum- If you could stop by the Sheriff's Office, that'd be great," the Sheriff's Office page read.

Later the Sheriff's Office added, "Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask."

It is not clear if Marcum obliged by the sheriff's office request. 

"It's the equivalent of poking a bear in a cage and what will eventually happen is the bear will get you,” said Sheriff Jones.

He also had a message for Marcum.

"You are a very sought after individual and I would like to wish you good luck but I don't mean it,” said Jones.

Sheriff Richard K. Jones tweeted Tuesday morning a photo of a jail cell with the caption "Hey Andrew Marcum we've got your room ready."



Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Butler County Sheriff's Office (if Marcum doesn't first) at 513-785-1258.
