Sharing a Facebook status has landed an assault suspect in jail in Luzerne County.

Anthony Lescowitch, 35, of Freeland, was arrested Monday night.

According to the Times-Leader, police posted Lescowitch's mug shot on the department's page. Lescowitch then apparently "shared" it and taunted police for not being able to find him.

He then accepted an offer from a woman to meet for a cigarette.

But police were waiting for him.

They had been posing as the woman to lure him in.

And it worked.
