Have you seen this burglary suspect?
Yes – he lives at the bottom of my garden
Either the burglar was wearing a cunning vegetable disguise or this might just be the world’s worst ever e-fit picture.
The “likeness” of a man with what appears to be a lettuce halo was drawn by an artist for Hampshire police hunting a thief who stole £60 from an 85-year-old pensioner’s handbag.
The man was described as white, aged 40 to 45, with a round clean-shaven face, large eyes and wavy blonde to greying hair… .although in the picture his hair looks lime green…
The image even has a note on it warning: “This is an efit-v facial composite. It is not a photograph…”
Police hope the image, released yesterday, will help them trace the man after the burglary on August 27. A detective said: “We would like to hear from anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit image…”
He was unable to comment on the hair.
