Florida police officers went to a home to arrest a suspect. Then they saw a sign in the window

A Central Florida man wanted on numerous charges thought of a creative way to avoid arrest over the weekend but was unsuccessful, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

In a news release on Facebook, the department said that last Saturday around 2:45 p.m., officers responded to a tip at the Lakeland home of a person they were looking for in connection with a series of alleged crimes.

The 41-year-old suspect was wanted for, among other things, serious bodily harm, false imprisonment and manipulation.

When they arrived at his house, about an hour south of Orlando, they noticed a large whiteboard on the windowsill. The message included the man’s name in blue ink, followed by: “Does NOT live here!!”

In the image accompanying the Facebook post, the word “not” was underlined for emphasis.

The Polk County sheriff says a Florida man wanted on charges tried to evade capture by posting a sign outside his home saying he

“One of the worst things about being a police officer is that you always have to be open to the possibility that people are lying to you,” the PCSO post said. “Man… a dry erase board has never lied to us before – are we supposed to believe that?”

A witness leaving the house was asked about the suspect’s whereabouts and, when asked, eventually revealed the goods – that he was inside.

Officers surrounded the home and began shouting over a loudspeaker. This lasted about an hour with no response. Eventually, the sheriff’s office said “surrender smoke” was issued and four people, excluding the suspect, left.

A second portion of a harmful substance was sent in, but still to no avail.

Eventually, with the help of K-9 Dexter, the man was discovered hiding in a dresser and arrested.

The four people who did not cooperate with the investigation were also arrested and charged with resisting arrest and “an all-expense paid trip to Grady Judd’s Bed & Breakfast,” as the county jail is called.

The post ended with weird hashtags like #ItsGettingSoYouCantEvenTrustADryEraseBoardAnymore, #ComeForOneLeaveWithFive, #JailbirdsOfAFeatherGoToJailTogether And #WeAllHaveJunkDrawersButWhoAmongUsKeepsFelonsInTheirDrawers.
