FACE'BOOKED' - CrimeStoppers suspect surrenders for unique reason
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Persistence pays off for Central Alabama CrimeStoppers and the Montgomery Police Department in their hunt for a domestic violence suspect after the suspect surrendered for a unique reason.
Authorities say D'Andre Jones turned himself in because he is tired of being told that his mugshot is being posted on Facebook.
Jones was wanted by authorities for domestic violence against his alleged victim after she told him to move out of their residence by March 1. Authorities say Jones hit the woman in the face with a closed fist, knocking her to the ground. It was at that point when he allegedly kicked her several times.
In their quest to find Jones, authorities shared his mugshot with WSFA 12 News, which in turn posted his photo in our weekly CrimeStoppers slideshow.

Images on the slideshow are typically seen more than 100,000 times per week, especially after being posted to social media sites. And it's shared hundreds of times by individual viewers.
Jones' unique reason for surrendering will earn him at least one more post to Facebook.
