Wanted British man dislikes mug shot, sends in new picture
A British man on the run from police sent a picture of himself to his local newspaper because he didn't like the mug shot they had printed of him.
South Wales Police had issued media with the photo of Matthew Maynard, who was wanted over a house break-in.
But when it appeared in the South Wales Evening Post, the 23-year-old was horrified, and sent the paper a better snap.
It has now appeared on the front page and police say the vain burglar has done them a favour.
“Everyone in Swansea will know what he looks like now.”
