CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A wanted man seems to be taunting police on social media as they try to find him.

Harry McDowell is wanted by North College Hill police on charges of stalking, domestic violence, aggravated burglary and more.

The department posted his photo on Facebook asking anyone with information about where McDowell is to call them.

Well, a Facebook photo of McDowell holding his wanted poster was posted shortly after, according to police.

McDowell did not stop with the Facebook post.

He called North College Hill police on Tuesday to tell them he will not turn himself in, according to the department.

Police say they are pulling in other departments to help find McDowell.

McDowell is described as 5′8″ and weighs 147 pounds.

Anyone who knows where he is or might be is asked to call police at 513-521-7171 or Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.

This is not the first time law enforcement in the Tri-State has had something like this happen.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said he had a wanted suspect posting pictures and sending him texts.

“He was taking pictures where he’s at and ‘you’ll never catch me.’ He would call in and send texts, and ‘haha,’ and ‘hehe’ and I would send him a text back,” Sheriff Jones said.

The sheriff said his office got the last laugh when they caught the suspect.

Sheriff Jones said he expects the case in North College Hill will have a similar ending for the man on the run.
