NEW ZEALAND — A man who taunted police on their Facebook page while on the run has turned himself in.
Michael Shane Hagger, 34, failed to appear in court in May for shoplifting-related charges and last week posted an attention-grabbing Facebook message underneath a post with his picture calling for information on his whereabouts, The Southland Times reported.
"Hoo rah," it said.
The Tauhara Paetiki Neighbourhood Policing Team responded and asked him to get in touch with detectives.
Hagger then went to the Facebook page of Fairfax NZ and posted he would voluntarily appear at court.
