"Give us a call and let us be their Cupid;" Ohio sheriff encouraging people to turn in ex-lovers with active arrest warrants

"All we need to make them a valid entry in our Valentine’s Day weekend contest is their name and where we can locate them to reward them."

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio — Love is in the air... and so are active arrest warrants. 

Following a recent trend posted by police departments and sheriff's offices around the country, the Gallia County Sheriff's Office in southern Ohio took to Facebook on Friday to offer up a special opportunity for scorned individuals to get back at their exes by turning them in, V-Day style.

The prize, according to the sheriff's office, includes "free transportation, a historic bed and breakfast weekend stay," and "some of our finest cuisine."
