HACKENSACK (AP) - A New Jersey sheriff's office has a new
website that's looking for arrests instead of friends.

"Facecrook" features the names, photos and last locations of
fugitives wanted by the Bergen County Sheriff's Office. The site
creates a map and users can send anonymous tips to help authorities apprehend those wanted on everything from failure to pay child support to committing murder.

Inspector Mickey Bradley tells The Record newspaper 
he came up with the idea about a year ago and bought the Facecrook address for $17.

Users entering the site must agree not to use it to "intimidate
or harass another." The site includes a "do not apprehend"
warning to discourage people from vigilantism.
