Wanted Man Snapchats His Hiding Spot, Cops Arrest Him in Cabinet

By Sean Dowling

The police are on your tail and narrowing in on your hiding spot, so what do you do? If you're like this winner, post your location on Snapchat.

Maybe he was helping police arrest him? Christopher Wallace of Maine used Snapchat to post he was back home, after cops say he avoided arrest for weeks.

Somerset County Police were looking for Wallace in connection to a burglary of cooking equipment.
They found him when he posted on Snapchat he was back home. People who saw the post alerted police who then searched the house and came up empty handed.

But, not for long.

Police say as they were wrapping up their search, Wallace posted again on Snapchat that police were searching for him, and he was hiding in the cabinet.

Police searched the house again and went straight for the kitchen cabinets. They found pots and pans, and a pair of feet belonging to Mr. Wallace. He was arrested, and so was his accomplice, Erika Hall. Cops say Hall repeatedly told them no one was in the house and she hadn't seen Wallace in weeks.

This is one Snapchat that didn't disappear after 10 seconds.
