Cheeky police make Goonies tweet

Officers suggest suspect looks like Sloth from hit 80s film


A burglary suspect has apparently been compared to Sloth from The Goonies after police tweeted a photo of him with a reference to the American comedy classic film.

West Midlands Police, who have been praised for their sense of humour by social media users, tweeted the picture of wanted man Louis Barnett from their official account, with the phrase "Hey You Guys" – made famous by the 1985 cult film.

Several Twitter users responded to the appeal by suggesting that Barnett, aged 23, resembles The Goonies' character Sloth.

Barnett, from Stechford, Birmingham, is wanted in connection with a break-in committed in the Castle Bromwich area.

Electrical items and jewellery were stolen during the offence on May 18.
