Virginia State Police is crediting tips from its Facebook fans for the arrest of a fugitive.
State police had asked for the public's help in a Tuesday posting on the agency's Facebook page. On Wednesday, the agency said in a Facebook posting that information provided by fans helped troopers find and arrest a man wanted on a parole violation.
The suspect faces additional charges of felony child neglect and driving on suspended license. State police say he ran and left an 11-month-old child unattended in a vehicle after a Smyth County trooper began following him.
