GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man who was arrested after “liking” his mug shot on a Crimestoppers Facebook page has posted bond in a felony forgery case.

Levi Charles Reardon of Great Falls was arrested on April 24, three weeks after an acquaintance pointed out his picture on the Great Falls/Cascade County Crimestoppers Facebook page and Reardon liked it.

Reardon told the Great Falls Tribune (http://gftrib.com/1L0leUL ) on Monday that he was surprised at the level of attention he received after liking the post listing him as one of the area’s most wanted.

The 23-year-old said he’d been contacted by national news outlets for interviews.

Reardon pleaded not guilty on May 7. Public defender Alex Spayd said Reardon posted a $2,500 bond the next day. His trial is set for Aug. 31.
