Something tells us that this guy would have been caught pretty quickly, even if not for this epic failure of a move.

When police posted a mug shot of a man who they were looking for on Facebook, their goal was to get the word out and hopefully track him down with the help of the citizens.

But they needed no help from anyone other than the criminal they were looking for.

Roger Ray Ireland saw his own mugshot pop up on Anne Arundel County Police Department's Facebook page as part of its Wanted Wednesdays initiative.

Being the savvy criminal that he is, he replied to the post, saying: "Ya'll will never catch me."

Not surprisingly, it didn't take long at all for police to track him down, WMAR 2 Baltimore reported. In fact, they busted Ireland the next day!
