Suspect who told police ‘gotta be quicker than that’ on his wanted poster arrested
NEWARK, Ohio (Gray News) - Authorities in Ohio say a man has been arrested after he commented on his own wanted poster online.
According to the Newark Division of Police, officers were able to take 20-year-old Tanner Rhinehart into custody on Wednesday.
Last week, police shared online that Rhinehart was a wanted man for having multiple warrants. They alerted the public to contact them if the 20-year-old was spotted.
Rhinehart then replied to the social media post saying, “Y’all almost had [me] the other day you gotta be quicker than that.”
Officers said they ended up catching Rhinehart after he jumped into a river.
“Mr. Rhinehart thought jumping in the river would evade capture; however, he was wrong,” police wrote.
Authorities said the 20-year-old was arrested without further incident.
