Foolish criminal arrested after liking his own Facebook wanted post

US:   A suspected crook who liked his own wanted post on Facebook has been arrested.

Levi Charles Reardon, 23, appeared on a Crimestoppers page that described him as "wanted on: forgery (common scheme), felony, total bond $2,500."

Shortly after the appeal was made, a user with the same name as Levi liked the post.

Reardon is a suspect in a case in Montana, US, involving the theft of a wallet and personal cheques last January, according to court records.

He is believed to have cashed four of the missing cheques, the report states.

Police have confirmed they arrested Rearden, who had two warrants out for his arrest, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

He made an initial court appearance for felony forgery (common scheme).
