A wanted man who told police on their own Facebook page to "catch me if you can" has been arrested.
Logan Rhys James, from Caerphilly, had been on the run for a week after being recalled to jail for breaching his licence.
Gwent Police posted the 19-year-old's mugshot on social media with an appeal for information on his whereabouts.
Just hours later a comment appeared, from James' profile, on the forces' Facebook page saying: "Haha catch me if you can wont (sic) see me slipping".
However, the teenager was later arrested in his home town.
This demonstrates our commitment to finding and arresting people who fail to abide by the terms of their release from prison.
Our officers had been making arrest enquiries to locate him and we had also been issuing appeals to trace him. We would like to thank the public, the media and Mr James himself for drawing attention to our efforts to return him to prison.
Police said James had been given an eight month sentence by the courts for affray in June last year.
