Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton, said Rod Leigh, a wanted fugitive in Kentucky, was arrested Friday in Tallahassee, FL.

Melton said he had 3 warrants in Franklin County and 2 in Anderson County.

Deputies said after Leigh did not show up for court, he was placed on Franklin County's most wanted website and their Facebook page.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office got a tip through their anonymous "text a tip" line that Leigh had shared the most wanted photo on his own Facebook page with the comment "Mitt Romney and Obama suck, vote for me, I'm a felon, pow pow".

When the Sheriff's department check out Leigh's Facebook page, they said they also saw that he gave his address, in Tallahassee, for his upcoming birthday party.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Department got together with the Leon County Sheriff's Department to go by his party to make contact.

Leigh did not show to the party.

He was later arrested at a Loan to Pay business by Tallahassee Police.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Department is working with the Leon County Sheriff's Department to extradite Leigh.
