Police have used a novel approach to fighting crime - writing a letter to a suspect via Twitter.
Kingston Police wrote to Tracey Dyke, suspected of multiple burglaries, accusing her of "blanking" them.
In an appeal to contact the suspect, the force wrote: "We have come round to see you a number of times recently but it looks like you'd rather not speak to us, which is very disappointing.
"We have a slight suspicion that you might be blanking us #Awkward. You don't text, you don't call back and haven't accepted our friend request."
They added: "Please stop ignoring us Tracey."
The letter said Dyke was a suspect for burglaries in Kingston, south west London, where vulnerable victims had been targeted, leaving them "traumatised and very upset".
It continued: "We won't stand for this and want to have a discussion with you at our custody suite."
As well as attaching a photograph of the suspect, police asked Dyke to hand herself in or call 101, and asked members of the public to call 999 if they see her.
