They say everyone has a look-alike somewhere on the planet. Turns out, David Schwimmer‘s is somewhere in the vicinity of Blackpool, England — and he happens to be a person of interest in a theft from a local restaurant. That’s right, the dude who is looking straight at security cameras as he hauls out a case of beer, is a dead ringer for Ross Geller from Friends.
The suspect is still at large but he should be approached with caution;
Geller the suspect is believed to have studied karate for a long time and has mastered what the Japanese call unagi, a state of total awareness. So he’ll be alert to any danger that may befall him.
There are some who think the suspect looks more like the Holiday Armadillo; others believe it’s really Russ and he’s trying to frame Ross.

This person agrees, and thinks Ross has better things to do with his time.

If it was Ross, he would need help from some accomplices, be it Miss Chanandler Bong, Regina Phalange and/or Ken Adams. Whatever the case, it would take some carefully planned teamwork.

Blackpool Police have confirmed that Schwimmer was in America on the date in question so he’s been cleared. The actor was a good sport about it all and also spoke out, revealing his whereabouts and wishing officers luck with their investigation.

The guy in Blackpool might not get away with it, but ROSS CAN

People with genuine information on the alleged crime have been encouraged to contact Blackpool Police as a criminal act did indeed happen. At this point, however, things don’t look good. They might never catch this guy. They could try but they would not be successful.

Or why do bad people get away with bad things? That may be more appropriate here.
