According UPI  news, Logan Rhys James, 19, was released from prison early after being convicted in a knife attack, but Gwent Police posted his photo to its Facebook page Friday after he allegedly violated the conditions of his release.

Police said James commented on the photo.

"Haha catch me if you can, won't see me slipping," James posted.

Police said James' prediction proved false, and he was arrested Sunday night.

Gwent Police Superintendent Marc Budden thanked James for helping police find him.

"This demonstrates our commitment to finding and arresting people who fail to abide by the terms of their release from prison," Budden said in a Facebook post "Our officers had been making arrest inquiries to locate him and we had also been issuing appeals to trace him. We would like to thank the public, the media and Mr. James himself for drawing attention to our efforts to return him to prison."
