A kidnapping suspect was arrested at an Iron Maiden concert—after a Facebook post led police right to him.

Derrick Roseland was wanted on an aggravated kidnapping charge in Austin, Texas, and authorities were alerted to a Facebook post from Roseland’s friend, which displayed tickets to a June 24 show at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. Roseland was arrested at the concert, according to a post on the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, which also circulated a selfie of Roseland (and his swastika tattoos).

According to an arrest affidavit, Roseland had been wanted since June 12, when he forced someone to drive him to Jack in the Box after ditching a vehicle in North Austin.
