STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
An Upstate New York man became a fugitive. Victor Burgos fled because he faced criminal charges, including domestic violence. He made the 10 most wanted list in Utica, New York. Mr. Burgos made it to New York City and taunted police on Facebook. Catch me if you can, he announced online. I'm in Brooklyn. And according to the Daily News, police obliged. After reading his message, they tracked him down at an apartment, sitting at his computer, reading Facebook.
