The witness compiled a cartoon portrait of a thief, but it turned out that such a person really exists

The market for the American city of Lancaster was a thief. An unknown man waited until the seller turned away, stood in his place behind the counter and took money from the buyers, and then ran off with the proceeds. One of the witnesses of the resourceful citizen’s work sketched for the police a schematic and slightly odd portrait of the suspect. Strangely enough, it worked .

The police decided not to ignore the desire of the local resident to help in solving the crime and replicated the drawing in the city. Together with the description of appearance, the picture helped one of the investigators to understand who is talking about. Suspicions fell on the 44-year-old homeless, who, probably, was already involved by the police. The man was identified by witnesses, now his search is under way.
