A Maryland fugitive is in custody after his girlfriend's “like” of a Virginia sheriff's Facebook page led authorities to him.

Dyllan Otto Naecker, 29, was captured Wednesday at his girlfriend's residence near Bluefield, according to the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office tells media outlets that the girlfriend, Samantha Dillow, has been charged with obstruction of justice.

Police determined Dillow's identity after she “liked” the sheriff's office's Facebook page.

The sheriff's office in Queen Anne's County, Md., said Naecker is a registered sex offender who was living in Grasonville, Md. Police learned in late July that Naecker had left his residence and possibly fled to the Bluefield area.
