Ross from Friends look-alike caught

Police hunting for a suspected thief who looks like Friends actor David Schwimmer have made an arrest in London.

An appeal for information on the suspect was first put up on the Blackpool police's Facebook page, with a surveillance camera still of the man, who is the spitting image of Schwimmer, clutching a crate of beer.

The 52-year-old actor eventually weighed in, with a witty video of himself sneakily carrying a crate of beer in a grocery store.

"Officers, I swear it wasn't me", he captioned it. As you can see, I was in NY.

Met Police officers arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of theft in Southall, west London last night.

Lancashire constabulary quickly made clear that the suspect was not Schwimmer, stating: "Thank you to everyone for your speedy responses".

United Kingdom police have made an arrest in an alleged beer theft that made global headlines last month because the suspect looked so much like Ross from Friends.

Schwimmer's lighthearted video, which attracted 180,000 retweets and 611,000 likes, had been posted on Twitter two days earlier. Local police were quick to reply. Many Twitter users began making "Friends"-related jokes - especially revolving around the show's catchy theme song, "I'll Be There For You". Love life DOA. It's like he's always stuck in second gear.

"I don't think it's been this guy's day, his week, his month or even his year", one fan wrote in one of the 101,000 comments that were left on the post, according to the BBC.

Aaron Milburn added: 'Please approach with caution.

"We're so sorry it had to be this way".
