‘Most wanted’ Suspect Arrested After Asking About Reward Money On Police Facebook Post
Tulsa, Oklahoma: A criminal who asked how much money the person who handed her to the police would be getting was arrested.
Lorraine Graves was reportedly running from authorities since March after being accused of being an accessory to murder.
In an effort to find her, the Tulsa Police Department shared images of her on social media as part of its ‘Weekly Most Wanted’ campaign.
The Facebook post shared on July 14 read:
“The Tulsa Police Department is looking for information about the whereabouts of Lorraine Graves. Lorraine Graves is charged with Accessory to Murder. Detectives say she was involved in the city’s 10th homicide of 2021 where Eric Graves was shot and killed at the St. Thomas Square Apartments. Jayden and Gabriel Hopson are charged with murder and have already been arrested.”
She was described as a Black female that was about 5ft 7 tall and weighed 200lb.
Surprisingly, Graves thought it wouldn’t be too much of an issue to comment on the post and ask about the cash award. She wrote the following:
“Where’s the reward money at”
Followers of the page then warned Graves against using social media as she could easily be tracked down, and that is exactly what happened…
The police arrested Graves the next day.
The police department has since issued an update and announced that Graves’ bond has been set at $500,000.
On July 16 they posted:
“On Wednesday, we posted Lorraine Graves as the Weekly Most Wanted for Accessory to Murder in the homicide of Eric Graves earlier this year.
Shortly after that, Lorraine Graves started commenting on our post asking about reward money. On 7/15/21 around 4:30 p.m., detectives with our Fugitive Warrants unit arrested Graves in north Tulsa near 36th St. N. and Garrison Ave.”
According to the police, Graves has not been convicted yet.
