Simms initially wanted 20,000 likes.

A CT police department says they negotiated the terms of surrender of one wanted fugitive in the most trendy way possible: He agreed to turn himself in if 15,000 people like his wanted poster on Facebook.

The Torrington Police Department detailed the weird situation involving 29-year-old Jose Simms - who is wanted on seven arrest warrants for failure to appear in court - in a Facebook post early Wednesday.

Johnson's Facebook post had almost 9,000 likes within 13 hours.

Sgt. Jay Peters, with the Torrington Police Department, told Fox News two lieutenants posted on the department's Facebook page Wednesday to detail the conditions of the fugitive's surrender.

Police called the post an "interesting one" on the department's Facebook page, saying the goal "will be hard but is doable". "So please, "like" this post, and while you're at it share it, Tweet it, Instagram it, Snapchat it", the department said in the Facebook post.

Some Facebook users got a kick out of the department's modern-day way to catch a criminal.

He also suggested that if anyone knows were Simms is hiding they could let police know and save the department some suspense.

Gregory Scott wrote: "This is different. But a cool way to go about this situation.Try it more I say to Torrington PD".

Torrington police replied, "No...we have to draw the line somewhere".

Simms' records vary from misdemeanor breach of peace and motor vehicle charges to risk of injury to a child.

As of 1 p.m. Wednesday, the post had passed 4,500 likes, still a long way from catching Simms' attention.
