Earlier this week, Gwent Police had to take down a mugshot that they had posted on Facebook of a man that they wanted to get hold of in connection with supplying drugs.
Social media is increasingly being used by the police as a tool to track down criminals. I mean, I guess it makes sense - they're more likely to find someone through Facebook than they are sticking a mugshot up on the community center notice board.
Still, posting mugshots on social media is asking for trouble, right?
Seeing social media being used for police work somehow feels wrong, kinda like seeing your high school teacher at a bar...
So it's no surprise that, when Welsh force, Gwent Police, posted the mugshot in the hope of locating Jermaine Taylor, the comments didn't stick to strictly police business.
Not everyone can look as fine as Frank Sinatra did in his mugshot...Seduction indeed!
Justin Bieber has been known to pull off a decent mugshot.Justin warned fans that "jail is not a cool place to." I wonder what the statistics for teenage girls shoplifting were every time Justin landed in a cell. I'd wager that they spiked dramatically.
Mugshot fashion.Bieber looked so good in his mugshots that people wanted to get the mugshot emblazoned onto hoodies, tote bags, tees... You name it, there's probably a version of it with Justin Bieber's mugshot on it somewhere. A mug with Justin Bieber's mug on! Genius.
After ASAP Rocky was arrested in Sweden, one question was on everyone's minds...Where's the mugshot at? (I need me a new hoodie.)
Lindsey Lohan takes a good mugshot.I'd say that it's just good lighting, but I've seen plenty of bad mugshots, so maybe Lindsey is just that photogenic...
Skylers new decorations, Lindsey Lohan mugshots ❤️ http://t.co/D0iutr8Kr8— Karla Cabello (@Karla Cabello)1439758212.0
Can celebrities take a bad mugshot?Maybe that's how you can distinguish a normal person from a celebrity. Maybe they should make a talent show and, rather than performing a song or dance, the contestants get their mugshot taken each week and get voted through accordingly. Looking for a new reality tv show to host, @LindseyLohan? I've got you covered.
How cute does Haley Joel Osment look in his mugshot!

The "Hot Fellon."
Jeremy Meeks' mugshot changed his entire life.
I guess, for some people, having their mugshot shared on social is a good thing...
Forget a modeling portfolio, you just need a decent mugshot.
