ADAMS COUNTY, Ohio -- (WJW) -- It wasn’t difficult for law enforcement in Southern Ohio to track down a man wanted for questioning in connection with several breaking and entering cases.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office put out an alert on Facebook Wednesday asking people to be on the lookout for Anthony “Popeye” Ward.
The post was shared nearly 3,000 times in part due to Ward’s distinctive face tattoo.
It resembles the mask worn by actor Anthony Hopkins’ character “Hannibal Lecter” in The Silence of the Lambs.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office edited the post Wednesday to say that Ward was in custody. They said he was located in nearby Clermont County.
