WASHINGTON (SBG) — Police in England are hunting for a suspected beer thief who bears a striking resemblance to David Schwimmer, best known for his portrayal of Ross Geller on the popular 90s sitcom "Friends."

Blackpool Police posted a photo on Facebook, seeking the public's help identifying a man who is accused of stealing several beers from a restaurant.

The post quickly garnered thousands of comments from "Friends" fans referencing the show. One said, "That's no Ross Geller, that's the Holiday Armadillo!!!" Another quipped, "Lay off him. He grew up with Monica. IF YOU DIDNT EAT FAST YOU DIDNT EAT."

The police were surprised by the amount of attention the post received, apparently not noticing the resemblance before. “Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses,” the police responded. “We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date. We're so sorry it has to be this way.”
