Suspect says he'll turn himself in if Facebook post gets 15K likes

Wanted man says he'll turn himself in if he gets 15K Facebook likes: Police

Twenty-nine-year-old Jose Simms, who is believed to be in NY now and who has several outstanding warrants, promised to turn himself in under one condition: If the Facebook post written by the Connecticut PD that includes Simms" "Wanted" poster gets 15,000 "likes' on the social network, Simms will surrender.

Simms is believed to be somewhere in NY.

Torrington police Lt. Brett Johnson posted on the department's Facebook page Wednesday that Sims had contacted him through the social media site and agreed to turn himself in if the post containing his poster gets 15,000 likes.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the post had just under 4,000 likes on Facebook. Johnson countered the offer with 10,000 likes. Since both parties appear to be reasonable, minus the whole suspected criminal thing of course, they met halfway, and that's how the goal of 15,000 was determined.

"It will be hard but is doable", Mr Johnson wrote.

Police say instead of the Facebook challenge, they could have worked to track Simms down based on computer forensics, but it would have required resources usually used on more egregious cases. Thank you to everyone who liked the post and messaged us with info.
