Anthony Swinburn's facebook page has now been deleted after this wanted-style photo was posted onto his page.

POLICE have arrested a man after a suspected crook teased officers by posting a wanted photo of himself on facebook.

Anthony Swinburn was cuffed by officers at an address in Purcell Road, Coventry, earlier today (Friday).

A wild-west style wanted poster appeared on the social networking site after the 28-year-old was placed on the force's most wanted list.

Last year he failed to turn up for court after being arrested for theft and common assault.

The twitter account for Longford Police stated: "Man who posted his own wanted poster online is now in custody.

"His wish was our command!"
