Awoman who was wanted by authorities for her alleged involvement in a murder in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in March was arrested last week after she commented on the local police’s social media post asking for information on her whereabouts.
Detectives arrested Lorraine Graves Wednesday near 36th Street North and Garrison Avenue in north Tulsa, the Tulsa Police Department said in a statement.
Graves was allegedly involved in the murder of 30-year-old Eric Graves, who was found fatally shot inside an apartment at the St. Thomas Square Apartments on March 13, NewsChannel 8 reported.
It was unclear how the two are related.
The Tulsa Police Department had featured Lorraine in one of its “Weekly Most Wanted” Facebook posts prior to her arrest, requesting information regarding her whereabouts.
According to police, Lorraine replied to the post and inquired about a reward.
“[W]here’s the reward money at,” read Lorraine’s comment, which has since been deleted.
A screenshot of the comment provided by police showed Lorraine received at least 39 replies.
“[G]iiiiirl you better stay off social media they can track you!!” one commenter wrote.
“Well did she get her reward money,” another asked in the original police post after Lorraine’s comment was deleted.
Police did not reveal how Lorraine’s comment contributed to her arrest. She was charged with accessory to murder, and her bond was set at $500,000, police said.
Two other suspects in the killing, Jayden and Gabriel Hopson, had already been arrested and charged with murder prior to Lorraine’s capture.
A similar arrest was made in Liverpool, England, when police nabbed a 39-year-old drug dealer after he posted a photo of his hand holding Stilton cheese on an encrypted messaging service.
Carl Stewart was arrested after police were able to analyze his palm and fingerprints from the photo he had uploaded to EncroChat, a messaging service that had already been cracked by police in Europe.
Stewart was sentenced to 13 years and six months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court in late May after pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply cocaine, conspiracy to supply heroin, MDMA and ketamine and transferring criminal property.
