A man wanted by Anne Arundel County police bragged, "Y'all will never catch me," in a comment under his own mugshot on their Facebook page Wednesday.

On Thursday, they did.

Roger Ray Ireland, 28, of Edgewater, was arrested in South Baltimore, near the Anne Arundel County line at about 1 p.m. and served with an outstanding warrant for violating his probation, police said.

Police featured him in one of their weekly "#WantedWednesday" Facebook posts, prompting people to tag his family members in the comments section.

"Yo all yall people tagging my hole family bout my [business] stay ... outta [my business]," Ireland wrote.

"Wait what?? Isn't that him right above my comment??" wrote another commenter.

Police said detectives from the department's Intelligence Unit received tips Thursday that led to Ireland's arrest.

No family member could be reached at a number listed for Ireland's address in the 2900 block of Chestnut Rd.

An assistant public defender will represent him in a hearing Friday morning, according to court documents. The public defender's office could not be reached Thursday evening.
