A Washington state police department discovered the hard way that you can’t always trust someone you meet online.
Mostly if you’re trying to arrest them.
The Richland Police Department narrated being played in a Facebook post on Monday that was sent to 38-year-old Anthony Akers. Police noted Akers had assured to turn himself in after being told he was wanted for “failure to comply” but the cops got stood up.
The post read “Dear Anthony, is it us? “Last Wednesday, we reached out to you as ‘wanted.’ You replied and even said you were going to turn yourself in. We waited, but you didn’t show.”
Q13FOX reported that the police department told Akers to call them and even offered to swing by his place. Akers reportedly has a history of “drug abuse and protection order violations,”.
Akers replied, essentially telling the cops: “It’s not you. It’s me.”
Akers noted he “obviously” has “commitment issues” — but promised he would be at the police station the next day “not later than lunchtime.”
Akers wrote “Thank you in advance to your response if you are patiently giving me another chance with us, I know I don’t deserve it. P.S. you’re beautiful,”.
After that, he posted a picture of himself outside the police station.
Akers wrote: “Here for our date sweetheart.”
