Silly criminal tells police to 'catch me if you can' on Facebook - then gets arrested

The 19-year-old had breached his licence conditions after being released from prison.

AN ON-THE-run criminal in Wales made a bit of a fool of himself when he posted a comment on the Gwent Police Facebook page telling them to – “catch me if you can”.

Police posted an appeal for information to help them locate 19-year-old Logan Rhys James who breached his licence conditions after being released from prison this month.

Under the appeal, Logan James left a comment telling police:

Catch me if you can [sic] wont see me slipping.

Speaking to a reporter yesterday, the Daily Mail reported the 19-year-old said he wouldn’t “let” police catch him.

“They have been round my mum’s house four times a day but I’ll be out for at least a month or two before they get me.”

Gwent Police posted an update yesterday on Facebook, telling followers that James had been arrested and was in police custody:

BBC reports Superintendent Marc Budden said he wanted to thank the on-the-run 19-year-old for “drawing attention to our efforts to return him to prison”.

“This demonstrates our commitment to finding and arresting people who fail to abide by the terms of their release from prison.”
