Torrington police say a fugitive has so far failed to honor an agreement to surrender once enough people liked his wanted poster on Facebook.
Jose Simms, who is believed to be somewhere in New York, has seven arrest warrants and is being sought as a fugitive after failing to appear in court on charges that range from breach of peace to risk of injury to a child.
Torrington police Lt. Brett Johnson posted on the department's Facebook page Wednesday that the 29-year-old Simms had contacted him through the social media site and agreed to turn himself in if the post containing his poster received 15,000 likes.
The page has far surpassed that number. As of 10 a.m. Friday, the Facebook post has 26,000 likes.
Police said Friday they will use all resources available to located Sims.
