The Somerset County Sheriff’s Office had been looking for Christopher Wallace, of Fairfield, Maine for several weeks in connection with a burglary which had occurred in January, 2015, even taking to the internet in seeking the community’s assistance and, once again, tech savvy police work landed in an arrest. Meet 24 y/o Christopher Wallace. That’s his mugshot below…
On Sunday, March 22nd, using the Snapchat app, Christopher posted that he was at his house in Fairfield, which prompted citizens to call the Sheriff’s Office and advise them that their fugitive was, well, at home. So police responded to the residence and met 20 y/o Erica Halls (pictured below), who stated that Wallace was not in the house, but he was, and so she was arrested for “hindering apprehension”.
Meanwhile, while at the house and during the course of their search the police received yet another citizen tip that Wallace had just posted a new Snapchat message stating that the police were inside of the house looking for him and that he was hiding in a cabinet.
Per the cops: “A search of the kitchen cabinets turned up some food, some pots and pans, and also a pair of feet… The pair of feet just so happened to be attached to a person, and that person was Christopher Wallace”. Posted on the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page on Monday, March 23rd. 2015: “Over the past few weeks, since our press release looking for the public’s assistance in locating him, Mr Wallace had become cocky. Which led to his downfall. This is where our story picks up… He was removed from the cabinet, and placed under arrest. All of that, brings me to the moral of the story. Always remain humble, my friends.”
As to Erica the Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook: “Let’s put it this way, when the police ask you multiple times if someone is in the house, and you answer repeatedly that they are not in the house, and that you have not seen said person in ”weeks”, you’re just going to get arrested. That’s how it happens.” Memo to Erica:
Memo to Christopher: The 5th Amendment protects you from self-incrimination. Your act, a marvel of modern technology, which effectively enabled you to confessing your whereabouts to the cops without uttering a single, has forefathers everywhere rolling in their graves.
