LIMA, Ohio (Jan. 11, 2016) – An Ohio fugitive didn’t care for the photos police released as they tried to track him down.

The Lima Police Department is looking for 45-year-old Donald “Chip” Pugh, who’s wanted for failure to appear in a drunk driving case.

But after seeing the Facebook post about himself, Pugh didn’t like the pictures police selected. He sent them another picture, saying “Here is a better photo that one is terrible,” according to YourNewsNow.

Lt. Andy Green with Lima police said he’d talked to Pugh on Wednesday, though Pugh said he was out of state. Green said the posts have gotten several shares and likes, and will eventually help police locate Pugh.

“He’s drawing more attention to himself, which is going to make it easier for us to locate him, because the more attention that this post garners, the more people are going to see it, the more tips are going to come in about this guy,” Green said.

Green hopes Pugh will “come to his senses,” turn himself in and “stop making this worse for himself.”

In addition to the failure to appear charge, Green said Pugh is a “person of interest” in other cases including arson and vandalism.
