It appears that Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, arrested during an FBI raid Wednesday on a slew of charges, is posting on Facebook from federal custody.
Chow, who appeared handcuffed and in shackles in court, has not entered a plea. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday
NBC Bay Area has not been able to confirm whether the Facebook page – which has posts and pictures of Chow with a number of public figures -- definitely belongs to him.
Another explanation for the latest posts could be that Chow is asking someone else to post the messages on his behalf.
A post from around 8 a.m. Friday morning urging everyone to stay positive had received 62 “likes” and seven replies as of 1 p.m.
“If you want to post something on my FB page please keep it positive. There is too much negative in this world. Stay positive and share that with me,” the post says.
A post from Thursday says: “Thank you to all of those who continue to believe and support me. Many of you know me, see me each day and know my heart. Thank you for your love."
Chow’s Facebook posts have received mostly positive responses with many encouraging him to stay strong.
