Suspect discovered by sheriff's office after making comment on Facebook page

Here is a “No duh” suggestion for suspects wanted for probation violation. Don’t comment on a sheriff’s office Facebook page.

That’s what Colby Gilliam did Tuesday when commenting about an injured Bay Bridge worker, on the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.

Gilliam posted from his Facebook profile, “"Come on ... get the facts before posting."

Someone at the sheriff’s office monitoring Facebook saw it and replied, "Thank you Colby -- By the way we still have a warrant for your arrest."

Lieutenant Dale Patrick with the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office tells FOX 5 they recognized the name and were familiar with Gilliam. He has been wanted since September for failing to appear in court.

Sheriffs are stepping up their efforts to catch Gilliam.

Other Facebook followers had a fun time poking fun at Gilliam.

Seems someone really is monitoring Facebook pages!

If you know the location of this wanted person, do not try and apprehend them. Contact the Office of the Sheriff by emailing sheriff@qac.org or call (410) 758-0770
