The Leicester Police Detectives are using Play-Doh to try to track down a recent shoplifter. The thief thought by covering a security device with the clay product it would not cause the alarm to go off when leaving a local store. The crook was wrong. When the alert sounded the suspect fled the scene, but left the Play-Doh behind.
Leicester Police recovered the Play-Doh and found the suspect had left a very good fingerprint pressed into it. The print is currently being processed to identify the suspect.
Remember kids, crime doesn’t pay.
