Fugitive responds to his warrant on sheriff's Facebook page

A man wanted by the Freeborn County Sheriff's Office for a felony violation order surprised the organization when he commented on their Facebook page asking for advice.

The sheriff's office posted a mugshot of Brett Nash on their Facebook page as a part of their weekly "Warrant Wednesday" tradition.

Nash commented on the post asking if the warrant could be resolved over the phone or in his home state of Kansas.

"I believe you are the first person on Warrant Wednesday to post comments about taking personal responsibility, apologizing for your actions and realizing that turning yourself in to finish the three months is the only way you move forward on a new path," the sheriff's office responded. "My suggestion is for you to do just that so you can start over clean and in a healthy direction."

Nash says he still has three months of probation time left to serve after pleading guilty to selling synthetic marijuana.

Nash apologized for anyone he hurt in the Albert Lea community.

Moving back to Kansas is what violated his parole, and the sheriff's office encourage Nash to turn himself in.

"I wouldn't change a thing with leaving that state to come home," Nash said in a follow up comment. "My supports are here. I just want to move forward."
