Fugitive says catch me if you can while taunting police on their Facebook page
A cheeky fugitive has been teasing the police on their own Facebook page, daring police to 'catch me if you can'. Luke McInerney, who is wanted in connection with an assault, has been evading Wiltshire Police force in Swindon.
After the police posted an appeal for him on the Swindon Police Facebook account, he cheekily appeared in the comments. An account claiming to be Luke commented: "If you offer a reward I'll tell you where I am."
"Swindon Police, how much will you offer to hand myself in? Let's come to some sort of arrangement, this holiday [is] getting expensive," he added in another comment.

Luke is from the Swindon area, but the police have warned that he could now be anywhere.
Not only did he post comments, but he also shared a 20-second video of himself. In the video, he wears a grey hoodie and a black cap with 'LUKE' written on it as he continues to mock Wiltshire Police.
"Here's where I am," he said.

"Alternatively, you can give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111."
