“A Florida man wanted by the cops tried to throw them off his trail by placing a big sign outside his house, reading: ‘Johnny Yates does NOT live here!!'”

The official police reaction was actually quite funny. They wrote on Facebook:

“When the deputies arrived they noticed a note written on a dry-erase board in front of a window that said, ‘Johnny Yates does NOT live here!!’

Gee…a dry-erase board never lied to us before!”
