Man responds to his own wanted poster taunting police after not liking how they described his hair

The fugitive commented on his own wanted poster

When police issue a wanted poster, there's a few people they would expect to hear from.

The likes of people in the local community, residents or even the landlord of the pub, are just some of the names who may come to mind.

However, the last person who police would expect to react to a wanted poster is the suspected criminal they are looking for.

Avon and Somerset Police in the UK posted on Facebook asking for help to locate 29-year-old, Daniel Kellaway.

He is wanted in connection with several offences, including threatening behaviour.

"We are appealing for the public's help to locate wanted 28-year-old Daniel Kellaway," the Facebook post begun.

"He is white, around 5ft 9ins tall, of average build, with brown eyes, receding brown hair and facial hair.

If you see him, or know of his whereabouts, please contact us and quote reference 5224065547."

Nothing immediately jumps out when you read that, unless you're Kellaway that is, who took it upon himself to come out of hiding and comment on the post because he didn't like the way they described his hair.

Was this really the hill you wanted to die on, Kellaway?

Commenting on the Facebook post from his own account, the suspect responded: "No need to mention the hairline guys, I'm heading turkey to get it sorted then we will catch up."

"Avon and Somerset Police it’s my birthday today so could you update the post at all? I’m 29 now and my hair is shaved ready for the transplant."

Kellaway has received close to 200 reactions from members of the public, with many finding the situation pretty hilarious.

"I shouldn't laugh at this, but I am," one person penned.

As funny as people on Facebook may have found it, not everyone found it as amusing.

As per the Daily Mail, retired detective Mick ­Neville said: "I have no doubt police will be combing the area looking for him.

"But Kellaway won't be laughing for long over this brush with the law — the net will be drawing in."

Funnily enough, another fugitive, Sonny Wescott, took offence at the same police force after they apparently spelt his surname wrong on a wanted poster.

As a result, the 34-year-old, from Bristol, used an offensive word to let coppers know what he thought of the speller.

They might want to have a word with whoever's writing these posters...

Avon and Somerset Police told UNILAD: "Our focus is on locating Daniel Kellaway, who is wanted in connection with several investigations, including threatening behaviour and criminal damage.

"We’d ask the public to report any sightings to us via 999, or 101 if they have any other information which would assist."
