A cheeky criminal who complained about the quality of his mugshot when Victorian police posted a warrant for his arrest on social media could get his wish.

Daniel Damon was arrested on Friday in Narre Warren after a few days of “getting his things in order”.

Victoria Police had posted a photo of the Bendigo man on their Facebook page on Monday, issuing a warrant for his arrest after he failed to answer bail for traffic and drug matters.

He replied to the post asking police to use a better photo, describing the one they used as “horrible”.

Police were quick to offer a response, posting: “Hi Daniel, please visit your nearest police station and we’ll arrange for a new photo to be taken!”

The 25-year-old said he would, once he got a few things in order, such as hiring a lawyer.

It’s not known if Daniel got everything done in time.
