Troopers use social media to catch wanted suspects

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - Updated: 7:58 PM

State police started "Warrant Wednesday" on its Facebook page last week to track down people wanted for arrests. You can see the postings by visiting the New York State Police Facebook page at

Each Wednesday, wanted posters will be added to the page. Each poster will include a photo, information about the subject, what they are wanted for, and a contact number for the appropriate police station. This will appear as a "photo album" on the page.

The State Police needs the public's assistance in this initiative and to help locate these wanted persons. The public is also encouraged to look at, share the postings each week. It is important that anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the individuals not take any police action themselves and instead contact State Police. The public should not post tips directly on the Facebook page, but instead use the phone numbers included in each poster to call.
