A witness-drawn police sketch helped cops find their man although the sketch was a bit "cartoonish."

The witness drew a picture of a suspected thief.

Lancaster, Pennsylvania police released the picture on Tuesday alongside a detailed description of the man in question.

The drawing was made fun of online, but the Lancaster police said they did not release the picture as a joke.

The suspect was identified as 44-year-old Hunt Phuoc Nguyen.

According to Lancaster Online, Nguyen pretended to be an employee at a vendor's while the real employee was away.

A warrant was issued for his arrest.
