A Lockport man is under arrest after State Police say he saw his own warrant posted on Facebook.

Troopers say 46-year-old Daniel Vargas turned himself in after seeing the post.

The arrest stems back to work investigators say Vargas was paid to do at a home in Lockport. The victim involved allegedly paid Vargas $2,800 as a security deposit for work to be finished last summer.

Vargas is currently charged with grand larceny; he's due back in court on February 4th.
