BLACKPOOL, England (KXAN) — Police in England posted a surveillance photo on Facebook of a suspect with an uncanny resemblance to “Friends” star David Schwimmer.
The photo obtained by NBC shows a man buying beer at a store in Blackpool.
He’s a suspect in the theft of a coat, wallet and cell phone from another store last month.
Blackpool police say they received tens of thousands of comments on the posting, including some leads that they are investigating.
And they said they confirmed that David Schwimmer was in the US on that day, so it’s definitely not him.
Comments on the police Facebook page included a lot of “Friends”-related humor. One comment echoed the show’s theme song, saying, “I don’t think it’s been this guy’s day, his week, his month or even his year.”
Even David Schwimmer himself got in on the fun.
Officers, I swear it wasn’t me.
As you can see, I was in New York.
To the hardworking Blackpool Police, good luck with the investigation.#itwasntme pic.twitter.com/EDFF9dZoYR— schwim (@DavidSchwimmer) October 24, 2018
