Being a smart ass doesn’t make you any smarter – as evidenced by Anthony James Lescowitch – a fugitive who allegedly posted his own “wanted” mugshot just minutes after it was released to the public by the Freeland Police Department(PA) via their Facebook Page!
The Freeland Police Department posted the photo of Lescowitch at 9:19 p.m. Monday, noting that 35 year old Lescowitch was wanted for aggravated assault and numerous other charges. Police said they noticed Lescowitch shared their post about him on his own personal Facebook page minutes after they posted it on theirs, and claim he mocked police in his post as well.
Suddenly!!! a gorgeous(and mysterious) young woman began chatting with Lescowitch via facebook instant messenger – eager to engage in conversation with him. After a half hour chat Lescowitch agreed to meet with the “admirer” for a cigarette.
The gorgeous young woman turned out to be an undercover officer(i’m as shocked as you are – gorgeous young women always flock to me on social media after I post mugshos) and when they arrived at the location Lescowitch specified, he came out and was promptly arrested without incident.
Less than two hours later, Freeland police posted another photo of Lescowitch, this time with the caption: “CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER.”
As of Tuesday, Lescowitch was jailed at Luzerne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bail, with a preliminary hearing set for 8 a.m. Jan. 29.
