Authorities in Ohio said a man is in custody after he commented on a sheriff's department Facebook post asking for information about his location.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office said Andrew Dale Marcum, 21, was being sought on multiple warrants when his picture was posted to the sheriff’s department Facebook page Monday with a message asking for members of the public to help locate the suspect.

"The highlight of his recent criminal past involves burglary / safe-cracking (a Felony 2). He's also been dabbling in abduction (F2), assault (M1), domestic violence (M1), criminal endangering (M1) and he has some bench warrants," the post said.

The sheriff's office said the best tip from the public came from Marcum himself, who commented on the post.

"I ain't tripping half of them don't even know me," Marcum wrote in a comment that was not explained by the sheriff's office.

The comment received hundreds of replies, including some from authorities asking Marcum to turn himself in to deputies.

A fellow-up-post to the Facebook page Tuesday evening said Marcum was in custody.

"Andrew Dale Marcum will be off Facebook temporarily, because there is no social media access in the Butler County Jail. He's turned himself in," the post read. "Thanks to our Facebook and Twitter friends for helping turn up the heat."
