BENSALEM, Pa. — Police say they’ve jailed a Pennsylvania drug suspect who had taunted them on social media, saying they wouldn’t be able to find and jail him.

But Bensalem police on Tuesday posted notice on their website that 20-year-old Shaheen Malik had been arrested on charges he sold acid, marijuana and ecstasy. Police say the suspect called himself “Hash” and used a woman’s alias on Facebook, where the taunts were posted.

Police say the public helped them locate Malik after police posted an alert on their website about Malik’s social media taunts.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Malik.

He remained in the Bucks County jail Wednesday on charges including possession with intent to deliver drugs.

He faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 15.
