FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — A police department in Florida took a page out of another department’s playbook, encouraging citizens to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit.
The Fort Walton Beach Police Department used a humorous post on Facebook on Thursday to encourage people with “an ex-Valentine” with active warrants to contact its office. The department said callers should give the fugitive’s location, if known, for a “special holiday offer.”
What is included in this sweet deal?
“This Friday evening’s special includes free transportation, a three-night stay in our luxurious (five-star) accommodations, Valentine’s happy meal dinner, and a special set of bracelets,” the police department posted.
The bracelets in the post are a set of handcuffs, positioned to look like a pair of hearts.
“All this can be yours for the price of a phone call,” the post read. “Callers can remain anonymous.”
The Fort Walton Police Department gave credit for the idea to the Somerset Police Department in Somerset, Massachusetts.
