The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is reporting a man who was wanted for a felony arrest warrant for sex offender registration was caught less than a day after they shared his photo with the public.

Allen Lee Burton was arrested on Friday. The sheriff's office wrote, "The power of social media: Less than 24 hours, this suspect, Allen Button, has been found and arrested thanks to you all and thanks to CSPD for your help with the arrest," on Twitter.

The sheriff's office believed Burton was living in homeless camps or shelters prior to his arrest.
