Are all criminals really this stupid?A 23-year-old and old enough to know better New Zealand man, Samuel Evan Lake, taunted police on their Facebook page while they made a post about his warrant.
While the police were reaching out to the community to try and get any information about Samuel Lake, the man on the run thought it would be funny to mock the police by commenting “I need to get a new mugshot.”
Within minutes, the police department responded by saying “Come see us and will arrange at no cost!”
To that comment, Samuel responded “If only they were as good at finding me as they were with comebacks,”
You spoke too soon, you dumbass.
The post collected thousands of likes and shares, before the post was finally deleted. However, it wasn’t long after the post was taken down that they were able to find Samuel Lake.
Cocky bastard. Now they even have proof of him knowingly evading arrest. I would pay thousands of dollars to hear the conversation between Samuel and the police officers as he was being arrested. His smart ass would be silent, and the police would just be rattling off jokes to the young man.
I hope we get to see that updated mugshot Sam was so eager to get.
