Reardon told the Great Falls Tribune on Monday that he was surprised at the level of attention he received after liking the post listing him as one of the area's most wanted.

The 23-year-old said he'd been contacted by national news outlets for interviews.

Reardon pleaded not guilty on May 7. Public defender Alex Spayd said Reardon posted a $2,500 bond the next day. His trial is set for Aug. 31.
