Law enforcement use of social media growing

Sheriff’s deputies trying to arrest a man on a routine warrant Tuesday chased him on foot into a DeArmanville neighborhood, where he hid in a shed.

Residents there sent the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office private Facebook  messages within seconds, wanting to know what was happening, and got prompt replies. The man was quickly found and arrested.
