Pasco deputies apprehended Matthew Oliver as he left his apartment on Friday. Despite the 80 degree weather, Oliver was seen wearing a camouflage hoodie sweatshirt

New Port Richey, Florida -- A New Port Richey man who saw his wanted picture on a Pasco County Sheriff's Office "Fugitive of the Day" Facebook post Wednesday morning decided to defend his innocence on the post through a series of comments.

Claiming he was in a hospital during a robbery in which he was named a suspect, Matthew Oliver's anger was apparent based on his comments -- which included he was set up by a "crack head" and blamed the sheriff's office for "slandering his name."

"Matthew Oliver if you would like to discuss your active warrant, please call the Fugitive Warrants Unit at 813-235-6064," replied Pasco Fugitive Warrants a couple of hours later.

Instead of calling the sheriff's office, Oliver continued to detail his alibi, writing he was "cut during an MMA fight, got MRSA" and was hospitalized for two months during the robbery in question.

Things then got somewhat entertaining after others started chiming in about how Oliver commenting on his own wanted picture isn't the smartest thing a wanted felon could do.

"He'll be on "World's Dumbest Criminals" in no time..." said one Facebook user.

"Ur runnin from the popo & post on your picture? Lol" said another.

Still, Oliver continued to post comments on his innocence throughout the day.

In fact, after reading Oliver's posts, Pasco Fugitive Warrants even commented: "I have verified that Matt's post about being in the hospital is true. In an earlier post, I provided a telephone number for him to call us. If he feels he does not fit the definition of the word 'fugitive,' I will be hearing from him."

However, Oliver still refused to cooperate so the Pasco Sheriff's Office continued their pursuit to arrest him. Deputies kept an eye on his apartment and apprehended him as he left Friday afternoon.
