A criminal from Washington has become the talk of internet town with his reply to Richland Police's 'Wanted' post on him! 38-year-old Anthony Akers turned himself in and had quite a conversation on Facebook much to the amuse of netizens. Along with a picture of Anthony, Richland WA Police Department took to Facebook last Thursday writing, "Wanted Wednesday! Anthony Akers (38) is wanted by the Department of Corrections for Failure to Comply. If you have any information please call 509-628-0333." And in some time, Anthony replied to the post shocking social media users.

He wrote, "Calm down, im going to turn myself in." Although he offered to go to the police station by himself, he did not keep his promise. And guess what?

Our business hours are 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Of course if you need a ride you can call non-emergency (509-628-0333) and we will pick you up." Man's Hilarious Attempt to Rob Colorado Store As His Gun and Pants Drop Is Going Viral (Watch Video)
