LAND O' LAKES, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect wanted for robbery in southwest Florida was apprehended after he posted Facebook comments under his wanted photo.

Pasco County Sheriff's Office posted a photo of 23-year-old Matthew Oliver on their Facebook page Wednesday as part of their Fugitive of the Day program.

A short time later, deputies said Oliver posted comments under the photo. Officials did not elaborate on what Oliver wrote.

Bay News 9 reports Oliver was arrested without resistance Friday as he walked outside of an apartment complex wearing a camouflage jacket with the hood up.
