A Wanted Criminal Posts on Facebook to See If He Can Get His Own Reward Money

 

I guess you can't really blame this guy for trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of his crime.

  

The cops in Palmview, Texas had a warrant out last month for a 19-year-old guy named Brandon Diaz . . . he was wanted for felony theft for stealing about $3,000 worth of jewelry from a family member.

  

So a few weeks ago, they posted about him on their Crime Stoppers Facebook page, and they offered up a $1,000 reward for any tips that led to him getting arrested.

  

And BRANDON responded to the Facebook post asking, quote, "Can I get my own reward?"  Then he put three "laughing so hard I'm crying" emojis.

  

The cops responded to him, quote, "We will see you very soon" . . . and they did.  They caught Brandon last week . . . and even followed up on their Facebook post by putting up a picture of him cuffed in a police car. 

 

He did not receive the reward.
