Authorities say a Pennsylvania man has turned himself into police after commenting on a Facebook post about himself.

The Bentleyville Police Department made a Facebook post March 20 asking for the public’s help in finding a wanted man.

“(He) is wanted on 36 outstanding warrants (totaling US$24,392.79) out of Washington County,” the post said.

Then, at about 1am on March 21, the man commented on the post.

“No need I’m turning myself,” he said.

The man went on to explain his side of the story.

“It’s funny I’m a felon and I haven’t been in trouble with the law in probably six years,” he said in the comment. “Now these are traffic violations I owe for and I have been making payments and when I wasn’t able to make payments I would bring myself in and sit it out.”

The man went on to say he recently found a new job.

“Child support’s like ‘yeah we’ll work with you.’ Bentleyville nope, ‘10,000 cash we won’t accept payments’,” the man wrote in the comment. “I paid them $220 cash 3 weeks ago, who has $10,000 and can just go give it to a magistrate? One single person, nobody got money like that around here.”

Police updated the post at 10.51am March 21 saying the man turned himself in and was taken to the Washington County Jail.
