“Facebook-Bandit” Man on the run finds time to update Facebook
Travis A. Nicolaysen runs from police, later responding to a friend on Facebook. We’ve all heard about drug addicts calling police to report their own bad drugs deals and/or “getting gypped” in the process — I guess updating your Facebook while on the run is the new “virtual stupid” these days.
26-year old Nicolaysen even avoided a police tracking dog, as the K9 only came up with the perpetrator’s bandanna. His first day running a friend posted on his to his Facebook “Cops all over you.”, which Nicolaysen responded the next day “ya got away thanks bro.”
Friends/family of Nicolaysen seem to be cheering him on as Teri Newell of Port Angeles, who helped raised him and considers herself as his aunt, said ”I think it’s hilarious,” she said and later adding ”That’s my boy, Travis,”
Nicolaysen does have a bit of a rap-sheet convicted of five felonies, including domestic violence, burglary and theft of a firearm. He is currently wanted by the Washington state Department of Corrections for “failing to check in with his community corrections officer since January.” said AP.
The Facebook-Bandit is also accused of assaulting his girlfriend on March 28 — or make that ‘ex-girlfriend’ as he changed his status on Facebook to “single” on Saturday, the Peninsula Daily News reported.
Nicolaysen has not been caught
