Disguise artist Ernik Jugland (thought to be responsible for the recent Sherlock Holmes sightings) has finally been caught by police after a 5-day chase in which he used up 400 disguises.

Said to be the master of looking like other people, Ernik started his break for freedom from police custardy by disguising himself as samisen twin police dogs. After leaving the police station he fashioned a Noel Edmunds disguise out of what he found in a bin and laying around on the pavement.

This disguise attracted a large crowd of 'deal or no deal' fans (Mr. Jugland even had the nerve to sign some autographs), under the cover of this crowd he slipped away in yet another disguise and started a four day trek across the country making sure to regularly change disguise along the way.

Police eventually caught him in the countries capital when people reported seeing what they thought was a wheelchair bound elderly man change into diving equipment and jump into the Thames. When captured he claimed to be a Jerry Hull a fifty year old IT worker from hull.

The disguise and back-story war so convincing the team of police had to take him to the home of the real Mr. Hull tacking it in turns to watch Ernik in case he tried to change into another disguise.

When they reached the IT workers house had just come home from a fancy dress party were he had gone dressed as Ernik Jugland, the police got even more confused when Ernik changed into identical clothing to Mr. Hull's costume when they were not looking. To make matters worse both had identical results in a lie detector test performed during interrogations to tell to two apart.

Ernik was only caught out when a junior police officer noticed that only one of them had Jugland's trademark facial tattoo of his own name across his forehead.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
