STUART, Fla. — A Florida man made it easy for cops to find him after he used his Facebook profile picture to his own “wanted” poster.

Mack Yearwood, who had two outstanding warrants out for him, was arrested Tuesday. Stuart Police Department wrote on Facebook that they found its suspect when he popped up on a simple Facebook search.

There, in the album of photos for his profile picture, was his “Wanted of the Week” posted from Citrus County Sheriff posted in March.

Police went to his home where they arrested and took him to the police station. However, Yearwood also had an extra surprise in his pocket.

While doing a search, officers found a bag of marijuana still in the pocket of his jeans that he asked to put on when he was being taken into custody, according to the police department’s Facebook post.

Yearwood was also charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams.
