Police CCTV image blasted

Social media users have criticised a CCTV image released by police in the search for a burglary suspect.

Police released this image in the hope of finding a burglary suspect

Sandwell Police released the image online, after a burglary in West Bromwich on August 2.

But some have struggled to see a man in the image – with others suggesting it "looks like a dolphin".

One commenter said: "This is the most ridiculous image I have ever seen. Even my 11-year-old son could pass for this picture if he went out on his own."

Another asked: "Is he in a goldfish bowl?"

One pointed out: "That technically could be anyone who wears a cap."

Another joked: "I thought it was a spaceship... Then I saw a nose."

But one woman said she would recognise him if it was a member of her family, saying: "I'm a mum and a grandmother. I know I could recognise no matter how blurry the image I'd know if it was any of my family so keep sharing." Sandwell Police posted on Facebook alongside the image saying: "We want to speak to this man following a burglary in West Bromwich.

"A burglar gained access to an address in Esher Road in the early hours of 2 August and stole a handbag.

"It contained a bank card which was then used to make several transactions.

"Anyone with information can get in touch with us via Live Chat at between 8am and midnight, or via 101 anytime. Quote crime reference number 20SW/183480H/19."
