Pasco County's 'fugitive of the day' arrested after comments on Facebook

Deputies with Pasco County arrested a wanted man after he left comments on the agency's Facebook page which had called him their 'Fugitive of the Day.'
 
Authorities named Matthew Oliver as a wanted man on their daily series on Wednesday.  Oliver, 23,  was wanted for robbery.
 
Within minutes of publication, Oliver began leaving comments under the post (see http://wfts.tv/14OlXnH).
 
Oliver was arrested Friday.
 
Pasco County spokesperson Melanie Snow said the 'Fugitive of the Day' is successful and often leads to an arrest, but this is the first time a fugitive has "actively engaged us through our page publicly."
