A wanted man who mocked police on Facebook by posting a taunting message to ‘come find him’ was arrested.

David Holmes, 27, from Skelmersdale had posted the cocky message on a police Facebook page after an appeal was launched to find ‘Lancashire’s most wanted’.

Holmes, who was wanted in connection to breaching a restraining order, made an ill-thought out attempt to goad Lancashire Police.

A screenshot of his “awkward” Facebook message to police was posted by the force following his capture.

After an appeal as part of Operation Hunter, wanted man David Holmes posted: “Do your job properly and come find me”.

The message was followed by emojis of explosions and a defiant hand gesture.

The message received over a hundred likes and laughing faces reactions.

Lancashire Police responded with their own message, which read: “Hi David [wave emoji] We’d advise you to do the right thing and hand yourself in.

“We have an excellent track record for these sorts of things you see, so we think you’ll find that sooner or later we will ‘come and find’ you. [smiley face emoji]”

Posting an image of the exchange following Holmes’ arrest, a spokesperson for Lancashire Police said: “That awkward moment when we do actually arrest and charge you.

“You might remember from our recent Op Hunter post, that David thought it wise to pop us a comment, after seeing his face on our ‘Most Wanted’ list.

“The moral of this story is that it’s probably not a wise move. We are after all, the police”.

Operation Hunter launched by Lancashire Police in July, targets individuals wanted for a range of offences including domestic abuse, sexual offences and general criminality.

In the last three months more than 550 warrants have been executed as part of the operation.
