Andrew Bolden is wanted for second degree robbery for allegedly stealing at Sears and second degree theft for possessing a stolen vehicle.
"We certainly feel that Facebook is a useful tool for us in crime solving," Sgt. Jason Halifax told WHO TV.
After the department identified Bolden by using social media, someone claiming to be the 31-year-old began posting on the department's page.
"first of all...i didn't rob anything. i shoplifted and ran away n security was embarrassed he couldnt stop me so he made up a lie about me beating him up," the initial post reads.
The DPD account responded that Bolden was welcome to "come in and speak to us about what you did."
"now I strive to be public enemy #1....yup, I got nothing to lose but the world to gain...how dangerous am I?" Bolden wrote back. "by the way the police forgot to warn the public that i'm a martial arts expert and my iq is quite on the high end, yall ready!!!???"
The department is still hopeful that Bolden will be arrested.
