GALLIA COUNTY, Ohio — An Ohio sheriff’s office is using scorned lovers to help find individuals with active warrants, posing a “Valentine’s Day contest” on their Facebook page.

The Gallia County Sheriff’s Office, located in southern Ohio, posted the “contest” on Friday, encouraging individuals who have “ex-Valentines” with active warrants to enter them into the "contest," which offers a reward of “free transportation, a historic bed and breakfast weekend stay, and some of our finest cuisine.”

In order to enter the “contest,” officers asked for the name of the individual with an active warrant and where they can be located.

Deputies provided their phone number for those looking to surprise their ex-loves who are avoiding the law with a Valentine’s Day incarceration prize.

“If you have an EX-Valentine and KNOW they have an active warrant, give us a call and let us be their Cupid,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.
