    This wanted poster released by the Torrington, Conn., Police Department on its Facebook page shows an undated booking photo of Jose Simms, a fugitive with seven arrest warrants being sought after failing to appear in court. An officer in the department reached a deal with the fugitive on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, who agreed to turn himself in if there were 15,000 likes of the wanted poster on social media. (Torrington Police Department via AP)New York – Police in Connecticut say a fugitive has so far failed to honor an agreement to surrender once enough people responded positively to his wanted poster on social media.

    Torrington police say Jose Simms has seven arrest warrants and is being sought as a fugitive after failing to appear in court on charges that range from breach of peace to risk of injury to a child.

    He is believed to be somewhere in New York.

    Torrington police Lt. Brett Johnson posted on the department’s Facebook page Wednesday that Simms had contacted him through the social media site and agreed to turn himself in if the post containing his poster received 15,000 likes.

    The page has far surpassed that number.

    Police said Friday that they will use all resources available to locate Simms.
