A man who was wanted by southern Ohio sheriff's deputies, and even commented to his accusers on Facebook, is behind bars.

This comes after the Butler County Sheriff’s Office put out an alert on Tuesday for Andrew Dale Marcum on their Facebook page.  Several of the commenters replied, saying they could provide information about Marcum.

The suspect ended up commenting on the post, saying "I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me."  The Butler County Sheriff's Office responded, asking Marcum "If you could stop by the Sheriff's Office, that'd be great."

Some 12 hours later, Marcum took the sheriff's deputies up on their offer and turned himself in.

The 21-year-old was wanted in connection with several crimes, including abduction, burglary, assault, among other charges.
