Freeland Police Department via Facebook

A Pennsylvania man who shared his own wanted poster on Facebook was arrested just 45 minutes later by police.

Anthony James Lescowitch Jr. had been evading arrest on assault charges since November, the Times Leader newspaper reported.

It didn't take Freeland police long to find him after Lescowitch posted a department message about him to his own Facebook page.

"lol i f***** love it,  A**HOLE," he wrote.

Posing as a woman who wanted to have a drink, police lured Lescowitch to another location and promptly took him into custody.

"CAPTURED!!!!!! SHARES OUR STATUS ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HIMSELF, CAPTURED 45 MINUTES LATER," the department wrote on its Facebook page.
