A Facebook user bearing the same name as the suspect, Andrew Marcum, commented, "I ain't tripping half of them don't even know me," on the Butler County Sheriff's Office Facebook post.

"If you could stop by the Sheriff's Office, that'd be great," the Sheriff's Office responded in the comments. "Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask."

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones even sent a tweet inviting Marcum to his new "living arrangement."

Hey Andrew Marcum we've got your room ready...

Eventually Marcum, 21, turned himself in.

Jones quipped about Marcum's emotional look in his mugshot.
