| Last updated
A wanted man has taunted police on a Facebook post about his warrant notice, telling cops: "Catch me if you can."
Jordan Carr, 20, from Enfield replied to a post by Bedfordshire Police appealing for help in locating him in connection with an incident from January last year and on recall to prison.
The post went on: "Carr has links to the Bedford area.
"He is described as approximately six-foot-tall, of medium build with short afro hair. He has the word 'Mum' tattooed on his hand and a small scar in the middle of his right hand."
In response to the post, a Facebook profile under the name Jordan Carr wrote: "Catch me if u can."
Detective Constable David Gordon, who is working on the case said: "We are asking for the public's help in locating Carr, as we would like to speak to him in connection with an incident in Kempston.
"If anyone knows of his whereabouts and is assisting him in any way, you may be at risk of committing a criminal offence."
A spokesperson for Bedfordshire police told mylondon on 3 March: "Jordan Carr is still wanted in connection with an incident we are investigating, and our officers are currently following several lines of enquiry."
Members of the public are asked not to approach him and to instead call 101 immediately if they see him or have any information on his whereabouts quoting reference number 40/AD/15893/20.
You can also submit information via independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
This is not the first time a wanted man has responded to his own warrant details on social media - back in 2017, Michael Zaydel, known on Facebook as Champagne Torino, ended up turning himself in after he made an unusual deal with cops on Facebook.
Zaydel challenged the Redford Police Department on Facebook saying if they got 1,000 shares on their next post, he would turn himself in, bring a dozen doughnuts to the station, and pick up litter around public schools.
The cops took on the challenge and, as you can imagine, hit the 1,000 target in just over an hour.
True to his word Zaydel did hand himself in, he also rocked up with a dozen doughnuts and a bagel.
