​Warwickshire Police Release Bizarre E-Fit Of Burglary Suspect

There may well be all kinds of modern technology to help us out these days, but sometimes police e-fits still don't quite hit the mark.

Stepping in to prove a case in point is one that's just been released by Warwickshire Police as officers try to hunt down a distraction burglary suspect - a distraction burglary suspect that seems to have a very distinctive set of gnashers:

I mean, maybe the suspect really does look like that, though somehow it seems unlikely.

Naturally, it didn't take long for the Internet to chip in and comment on the suspect's unique appearance.

Others also compared the suspect's appearance to the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, Zippy from Rainbow, Wallace from Wallace and Gromit and Moe from The Simpsons.

Some also commented to point out that April Fool's Day has been and gone, while other people suggested that the police get in touch with a local dentist to help identify the toothy suspect.

Providing details of the incident, Warwickshire Police said on its website: "At between 2.00pm and 2.36pm on 5 February 2018, two men claiming to be from Orbit Housing tricked their way into a flat in Hertford Place.

"One of the men distracted the occupant - a woman in her 40s - while the other man searched the property.

"When the victim realised what they were doing she ordered them to leave. The men left with a quantity of cash."

Warwickshire Police are also asking anyone with information to call 101, quoting incident 220 of 5 February 2018. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

Officers have also advised that there are several things you can do to avoid falling victim to distraction burglary, like putting the chain on your door before you open it, checking to see who's at the door first, being wary of anyone who says they're in a hurry and asking for proof of identity.
