#FugitiveFriday Success Story

Man Arrested After Being Featured on South Simcoe Police Social Media

A hashtag helped put the cuffs on a wanted man. The South Simcoe Police say a 38-year-old Bradford man didn’t show up to court on Thursday, prompting an arrest warrant being issued. That lead to police taking advantage of a Friday Twitter tradition: police featured the wanted individual as part of a social media #FugitiveFriday post. A citizen called police Saturday morning, after spotting first the post, then the suspect. He was taken into custody shortly after.
