“FAIRFIELD, Maine (March 24, 2015) — A Maine man who’d been wanted by police for several weeks made a couple of critical mistakes that led to his capture — he sent out social media messages pinpointing his location.” – Fox59.com, “Maine police track suspect through social media messages

The Somerset County (Maine) Sheriff posted the following on Facebook:

The big news of the morning is…Christopher Wallace was arrested last night on his arrest warrants for burglary and violation of administrative release. Over the past few weeks, since our press release looking for the public’s assistance in locating him, Mr. Wallace had become cocky. Which led to his downfall. This is where our story picks up.

Last night, using the Snapchat app, Wallace posted that he was at his house in Fairfield, which prompted people to call the Sheriff’s Office. Corporal Ritchie Putnam, Deputy Ron Blodgett (from our agency), and two officers from Fairfield Police Department went to the residence. They were given permission to search the house, and initially they did not find Wallace. Here’s where things went bad for him…While the deputies/officers were wrapping up their search, Wallace posted again on Snapchat. This time he posted that the police were searching for him in the house, and that he was hiding in a cabinet. Again, we received phone calls. A search of the kitchen cabinets turned up some food, some pots and pans, and also a pair of feet. The pair of feet just so happened to be attached to a person, and that person was Christopher Wallace. He was removed from the cabinet, and placed under arrest. All of that, brings me to the moral of the story. Always remain humble, my friends.

This story proves that Daffy Duck is correct.
