Connecticut Facebook Fugitive Chooses Fame Over Freedom

The Torrington Police Department recently received an unusual offer from a wanted fugitive.

According to Torrington Police, after negotiating with the police department, wanted fugitive Jose Simms, 29, offered to turn himself in if the Facebook post with his mugshot received 15,000 likes. The post was made early on Wednesday morning and within 24 hours, the post garnered the support of over 22,000 likes. However, Jose Simms has yet to turn himself in.

Lieutenant Johnson remains hopeful, writing, “We will update the post again when he does turn himself in. Thank you to everyone who liked the post and messaged us with info. It's all appreciated”.

This is an ongoing story. We will continue with updates as new information develops.
