It should be known by now that if you are doing dirt, it is best to keep you exploits off of social media. So many times, people who are being sought by the police are nailed on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, giving up their whereabouts or making posts boasting their illegal activities. Andrew Dale Marcum of Ohio got caught up recently after making a bold, yet ill-thought reply on Facebook.
Earlier on in the week, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office (Ohio) posted Marcum’s photo on Facebook with the following message:
Time for another featured warrant of the week! BCSO is looking to apprehend ANDREW DALE MARCUM on numerous warrants. He has previously been known to reside on Route 4 in Lemon Township, but also tends to commit crimes in Hamilton and Middletown.
The highlight of his recent criminal past involves burglary / safe-cracking (a Felony 2). He’s also been dabbling in abduction (F2), assault (M1), domestic violence (M1), criminal endangering (M1) and he has some bench warrants.
If you have information, call the Butler County Sheriff’s Office at 513-785-1258, or submit an anonymous tip at www.butlersheriff.org/tips.
Andrew Dale Marcum

If you see this subject, do not approach; call 9-1-1.
Marcum saw the post and actually posted a reply, saying, “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me,” a few hours later.
The sheriff’s office responded in the Facebook comments, “If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great. Hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask.” They also posted a message to Marcum on Twitter. It was a picture of an empty jail cell, with the caption, “Hey Andrew Marcum we’ve got your room ready…”
Marcum eventually succumbed to the police’s threats and turned himself in.
