YONKERS -

A Connecticut fugitive is offering to turn himself in to police if his wanted poster gets enough likes on social media.

Jose Simms says he will give himself in to Torrington police if his wanted poster gets 15,000 likes on Facebook.

Lt. Brett Johnson says Simms asked for 20,000 likes and he countered with 10,000 before reaching a compromise of 15,000 likes.

Simms has seven outstanding warrants and is believed to be somewhere in New York.
