A man who liked his own Facebook wanted post has been arrested.

Suspected criminal Levi Reardon, 23, appeared on a Crimestoppers page where he was "wanted on: forgery (common scheme), felony, total bond $2,500" and a user with the same name subsequently liked the post.

Court reports show Levi is a suspect in a case in Montana, US, where a wallet and personal cheque were stolen.

Reardon has been arrested by police, who had two warrants out for him, according to the Great Falls Tribune newspaper.
