A ‘Theresa May lookalike’ is being sought by police after money was stolen from a cash machine.
A woman withdrew money from an ATM outside the Tesco Express in Bushey Heath, Herts., on November 27, but accidentally left it behind.
It was then quickly swiped by a suspect.
Hertfordshire Constabulary put out a picture of a woman they believe could help them with their enquiries.
PC Gerard Handscombe, who is investigating, said: "It is believed that the woman pictured was in the area at the time of the offence and could have vital information that will help the investigation.
"If you recognise her, or have information about the incident, please get in touch with me through email at [email protected] or on the non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference 41/62146/18."
Eagle-eyed observers were quick to point out the similarities to the Tory leader.
One said: "I know it’s not her at all, but that really does look like Theresa May.
"I imagine she’s probably got more on her plate than pinching money from a cash machine."
Andy Turpie joked: "Theresa May’s ‘walk of shame’ home after last night’s celebrations it looks like."
Another added: "I thought this was going to be about Brexit."
The suspect is a middle-aged lady with a greying bob-type haircut and a sharp nose.
She was spotted wearing a black, Puffa-style jacket and clutching a black handbag.
Earlier this year, police in the UK issued a similar alert for a man who bore a striking resemblance to David Schwimmer.
The man who was arrested was wanted on suspicion of theft after he allegedly stole from a restaurant in Blackpool, Lancashire.
Their original appeal went viral and made headlines around the world due to the resemblance of a man pictured in a CCTV image to the Friends actor, who played the character Ross Gellar.
Within hours, the Facebook post on Blackpool Police’s page wracked up over 35,000 comments.
The force later wrote: "Blackpool Police Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses.
"We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date. We’re so sorry it has to be this way."
