Police have issued an online appeal to trace a burglary suspect featuring an apparent reference to American comedy classic The Goonies.
West Midlands Police's official Twitter feed used the phrase "Hey You Guys" - made famous by the 1985 cult film - alongside a picture of suspected offender Louis Barnett.

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.
