Kent Police issued a picture over the weekend, asking their followers for help identifying a man who they believed was connected to a suspected crime.
However, their plea fell a bit on deaf ears, as many people thought the person they were looking for resembled Grand Tour presenter, Jeremy Clarkson.
The police department wrote to the public: “Do you recognise this man? We believe he may have important information that can help us investigate the theft and fraudulent use of a bank card.
“The card is reported to have been used at various locations across Ashford in December 2019 after it was stolen from a handbag on 6 December. As part of our ongoing enquiries, our investigators are now in a position to release a picture of a man who may be able to help them establish the full picture.”
They continued: “Anyone who can help identify the man is asked to call us on 01843 222289 quoting 46/233046/19.
“Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or using the anonymous online form at Crimestoppers-uk.org.”
After posting the picture, comments came flooding in about it potentially being Jeremy Clarkson, with one person writing: “Jeremy Clarkson off that car show on TV?”
Another said: “I thought it was Jeremy Clarkson and I see I’m not the only one.”
A third wrote: “Definitely Clarkson, arrest him now..”
A fourth person hit the nail on the head with what everyone was thinking, saying: “It’s not just that his face and hair looks like Jeremy Clarkson, but the clothes he is wearing is just the kind of thing Jeremy would wear. I hope Jeremy has a good alibi.”
Now it’s important to remember that this ISN’T actually Jeremy Clarkson, and that an on-going investigation is still happening, so if you do know the man in the photo then please get in touch with Kent Police.
