A burglar who shares his split personality with a high ranking police officer yesterday shocked police officers in Todmorden, West Yorkshire when he arrested himself and brought himself in for questioning at the local police station.
"Thirty years on the force and I've never seen anything like this before," Desk Sergeant Bobby Copper told our reporter. "He came into the station trying to push his own arm up his back, shouting that he was innocent and then in the same breath telling himself he was nicked."
Bewildered policemen escorted Frank Knutt to a detention cell, where he interviewed himself and took a statement before demanding to be thrown into a proper cell and given a bit of a kicking.
Knutt admitted to himself that he'd broken into a furniture store and tried to steal a Welsh dresser and a chest of drawers, before disturbing himself and placing himself under arrest. It was lucky for him that he happened to be present when the burglary took place and that by swiftly intervening with himself he was able to prevent himself from making off with the stolen goods.
Knutt is expected to appear before Todmorden Magistrates accused of burglary and police brutality. It is thought that he will appeal for the maximum sentence with time off for good behaviour and easy access to a police car with flashing lights and a siren.
More as we get it.
