Police made a comical discovery during a routine arrest earlier this week, when they arrived to a house in West Yorkshire to arrest a suspected burglar.

While the man initially pretended not to be home, he was soon discovered by police, who noticed his long legs sticking out from under his bed.

However, before they arrested him, officers couldn't resist taking a photo of their discovery and posting it to the West Yorkshire Police Facebook page.

In a post including the picture, they wrote: "A male in Calderdale who was wanted by Police decided to try hide this morning when they went to his property looking for him.

"You will not be surprised to find out that yes we did find him - he will not be winning any awards for hide and seek champion soon!"

According to Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson, the arrest was made as part of "an ongoing proactive policing operation across Calderdale targeting those who are wanted by police. "
