There are a lot of examples around of cctv images of suspects where you can't make out a great deal, and then there are some that are just so bad they're pointless.

The only Fortean aspect to this is why they even bother.

Oh, hang on, we have a description to go on too:

"The male suspect had shaved hair at the back and sides. The woman had long hair and wore large earrings."

That narrows it down a lot.

Here's a close up of the face of the dude who is facing the camera:

That would be laughable if it wasn't such a serious offencse. Sad

Ah, what they need there is one of those "Enhance" (i.e. add pixels) buttons like they have on the computers on CSI...
