A MAN being sought by cops for an alleged offence has trolled a local police Facebook post calling for him to surrender himself.
Local law enforcement in the US town of Linden, Alabama put out a photo of Roderick Hill with an accompanying ‘wanted’ message on its official account.
The message read: “Roderick Hill of Linden and Mobile is wanted for Attempting to Elude, considered armed.
“Anyone caught helping him will be charged with Hindering Prosecution.”
But the man himself appeared to comment on the post, apparently surprised by all the fuss.
He wrote: “Wtf?? Man y'all doing too much... it's murderers out here and y'all worried bout lil ol' me? Wow...sad.”
Many Facebook users delighted in his reply, with some questioning the police claim he was dangerous.
One person wrote: “His response is priceless! Funniest thing I've seen all day!”
Another asked: “What did you do Roderick? I'm honestly curious...”
The fugitive even took the time to reply, saying: “I ran from them...I've never been caught or charged with a gun, never robbed. So how is it fair to label me armed over a traffic offence?”
He added: “And it was not a high-speed chase, I ran on foot so it's not even a felony.”
But some people questioned his innocence, with one person pointing to a picture of a gun and a wad of cash on his Facebook page as evidence he was lying.
Jeremy Ron King posted a link to the snap with the message: “Guessing this might have something to do with the ‘labelling’ of armed.”
But Hill again responded, saying: “Did u read the captions on my foto? Guess not...it clearly says u dnt have to b a dopeboi – meaning thug drug dealer gangster or whatever – to have money and a gun...the gun was legal and my money was hard earned from work.”
Hill is understood to still be at large.
