A fugitive from upstate New York who taunted police on his Facebook page to `catch me if you can. I’m in Brooklyn’ has been arrested.
The Daily News says U.S. marshals and NYPD detectives tracked Victor Burgos down to an apartment in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood Monday night, sitting at his computer with his Facebook page open.
Burgos, 29, issued his challenge to the cops at the best possible time, that being right after his mug shot was placed on the 10 most wanted list maintained by the Utica Police Department. He made things even easier when, according to another report, he posted a video of himself walking into an NYPD stationhouse on YouTube.
At some point he either began to wise up or somebody did it for him, because his messages to the police were deleted sometime before his Monday night arrest.
Burgos had been wanted on several domestic violence and harassment warrants.
