Police capture man from "cartoonish" sketch

LANCASTER BUREAU OF POLICE

But the case isn't drawing to a conclusion just yet.

After the witness who sketched the drawing picked that same suspect out of a photo lineup, police issued an arrest warrant for 44-year-old Hunt Phuoc Nguyen.

Lancaster police say the suspect pretended to be an employee before stealing an undisclosed amount in cash from a stand inside Central Market Feb. 6.

Investigators checked Nguyen's last known home address, but he was not there. The sketch and the "distinctive" description of the man "jogged the memory of at least one investigator" who provided a suspect name, police said.

Officers confirmed the witness positively identified Nguyen as the suspect after being shown his mugshot.

An amateur witness sketch proved to be no laughing matter after authorities were able to identify a man accused of a theft last month.

The department released a detailed description and a sketch of Nguyen, hand-drawn by a witness.

It was very sad when we heard about it. and as you probably know, he says he's innocent and I think you have to remember that". On a blog post titled "Why I Stayed", Willoughby wrote, "The first time he called me a "f***ing bitch" was on our honeymoon".

Thankfully, there were a number of witnesses to the theft, who described the man as 30-40 years old, 5 foot 4 inches tall and to be of South American or Asian descent.

'The suspect was further described as having straight, black hair that covered his ears and that he had wide-set cheekbones and a pointed chin, ' the Crime Watch blog said.

Police sketches are often considered to be works of art in their own right, however, they might go utterly wrong sometimes.

Police are now searching for Mr Nguyen and a criminal complaint has been filed, charging him with two counts of theft by unlawful taking.

The sketch was "amateurish and cartoonish", local police said Wednesday in a Facebook post.

Objectively, the sketch is bad.
