PIC: Police Roasted For E-Fit Image That Looks Like It Was Made On "Snapchat"

Cheshire police released the computer-generated image in the hunt for a man wanted for questioning after being spotted with a knife in a pub in Macclesfield, according to Manchester Evening News.

The good news is - the picture has been shared. A Lot.

The bad news? People are seriously questioning how much money is left in constabulary budgets.

Facebook-user Dominic Gibbs wrote: "There's budget cuts, and then there's using snapchat to take a picture of your mate and scribbling on his face. This is Cameron's fault.

Another user wrote: "When you're in charge of a criminal investigation but only have access to Microsoft Paint."

Tor Bullock questioned: "Is this a joke? Do we need to sort some kind of collection? I'm sure there's a course people can go on," while Anna Gough wrote: "Looks like the image was made on someone's PC using Paint."

In all seriousness though, the man is described as mid 30s, white, with short black hair and a dark beard. He entered The Park Tavern in Macclesfield on January 12 and sat alone, with AA batteries in a plastic case around his waist.
