Almost 2 Million People Want To ‘Storm Area 51’ After Facebook Post Goes Viral Photo: Getty Images

A wanted man in Bedfordshire, East England took to Facebook to taunt police by posting “catch me if you can” on his own mugshot poster. Jordan Carr, 20, was detained in connection with an incident in Kempston in January last year. He admitted to the possession of a “zombie knife” at Croydon Crown Court.

According to court records, Carr was sentenced in August 2020 to a total of one year’s detention in a Young Offenders Institution. It is not clear why he is no longer behind bars but it is likely that he has been released on license after serving half his sentence. However, he is also wanted on recall to prison, Bedfordshire Police said.

In his cheeky challenge to law enforcers, his Facebook profile under his name where he posted his taunting message raked more than 5,000 likes and 1.500 comments since with followers seemingly bemused by his brazen audacity, Daily Mail wrote.

His post is still live on Facebook gaining mixed online support and backlash since being published while police continue to search for his whereabouts. Police say the young lad has connections in the Bedford area which likely allows him to move around as he is still at large.

Some of the comments on his post read:

Andy Watson: “I don't know what you did Jordan but you deserve a pardon for your humour. Good luck.”

“'Bro if you need a place to hide more than welcome to hide here.” Jonny Gibbs joked.

David Joyce commented: “I believe he handed himself in for the reward... he said he'll do a ten stretch easy if he knows he's got £250 to get out to!!”

“Funny haha. You think you're a hard man and you will get caught. And [I] hope they put you away for a long time”, David Hartfield posted.

Meanwhile, a post from Bedfordshire Police's reads:

“We are appealing for help in locating a wanted man.”

“He is around six-foot-tall, of medium build with short afro hair. He has the word 'Mum' tattooed on his hand and a small scar in the middle of his right hand.”

Detective Constable David Gordon said: 'We're asking for the public's help in locating Carr, as we'd like to speak to him in connection with an incident in Kempston. If anyone knows of his whereabouts and is assisting him, you could be at risk of committing a criminal offense”.
