Facebook “like” tips off police to woman’s warrants

LARUE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A woman is facing even more warrants for “liking” a post on a police Facebook page.

According to the Hodgenville Police Department, Bonnie Wheeler “liked” one of her older wanted posts on its page.

“We love when folks bring attention to themselves. Had she not liked her photo, we would not have known to look and find her new warrants,” the department posted.

After liking the post, police say they discovered Wheeler had four active warrants out of Hart County for 15 cold checks.

Police are asking anyone who knows where Wheeler is to contact them so they “can update her mugshot.”
