Worst Police Sketch

A picture’s worth a thousand words. Or in this case, a suspected thief. Authorities in Lancaster, Pa. were able to identity a man accused of stealing cash from a market stand after they released a witness’ hand-drawn police sketch. The sketch, which was posted to the Lancaster Police Department’s Facebook page, immediately garnered attention and mockery because of its less than stellar details. Social media users dubbed it the world’s worst police sketch and were quick to share, comment,and photoshop pictures of friends’ faces onto the sketch.

The cartoonish looking sketch features a simple face shape, two beady eyes, an L-shaped nose, a single line for the mouth, squiggly hair, and a basic cap. But it was the witness who got the last laugh, as the sketch, along with descriptive details, was able to jog the memories of several cops.
