Police Using Play-Doh To Track Down Shoplifting Suspect


Leicester Police


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.
