A bizarre police e-fit appeal, a digital version of a police sketch, has attracted a lot of attention after people compared the wanted man with a Lego figure.

Northamptonshire Police issued the image to try to catch a distraction burglar who knocked on a woman’s door and told the occupant he needed to check the pipes due to “sewage issues”.


The force said she was in the back garden with the man in Vernon Walk, Northampton when another person entered the property and stole cash between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Thursday.

People have since used social media to liken the image to fictional characters, including Drop Dead Fred...

...and a character from the video game Grand Theft Auto.



One Facebook user, Kriss Manley, said:

“Looks like he is the star of the Lego movies.”


Another user, Christopher Ellingham, said:

“Distraction burglary….was his face the distraction?”

Ursula Ribeiro, also on Facebook, said:

“Northamptonshire Police win the ‘I just came here for the comments’ award again!
“They certainly know how to cheer up a dull Friday…thanks for the giggles!”



Police have asked anyone who recognizes the man in the image to come forward.

Don't tell mom!

Family secrets are a norm. Who doesn't have them? What's fun is figuring out who is keeping what from who? Normally it's dad trying and failing to keep things form mom. Let's face it, nine times out of ten, dad is the court jester trying pushing the line when mom is not looking. So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
