You could not make this up if you tired.Police are looking for a man that you could never recognise in a crime that happened nearly 2 months ago.

Whilst you may not be able to identify the man from the picture someone may have seen this guy in this get up before or after the robbery, seen him enter a house or flat or car or as the police have said recognise the clothing as something someone they know wears.

Releasing the picture isnt that daft

If he was thick enough to rob he may well have been thick enough to have his 'switched-on' mobile phone in his picket too. This is England and surely the long arms of the law will catch up with him.
