A woman wanted by Wandsworth police has commented on her own wanted posting that the police should have used a better photo.

Wandsworth MPS put out a notice on its Facebook page for 40-year-old Kellie Beasley, who is wanted on suspicion of nine different offences, including theft of an 86-year-old woman’s handbag.

Police described her as an “accomplished fraudster” who would “approach businesses claiming to be from their head office, allowing her to make off with their takings in cash.”

Beasley herself commented under the photo three hours after it was posted, writing: “F*ck me could have picked a better picture.”

Wandsworth Police pointed out it was the most up to date one they had and if she wanted a new one taken she would have to come into the police station.

In the colourful following exchanges Beasley promised she would clear her name and sue Wandsworth Police.

It’s not the first time wanted people have responded to their photos being published by Wandsworth Police.

In December 2016 18-year-old Nathan Bick told Wandsworth Police to “keep up if you can” under his own wanted post on Facebook.

Bick, Solna Avenue, Wandsworth, was sentenced for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order and stealing a motorbike to 16 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 weeks, at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on May 8.

A Met Police spokesman said Kellie is known in London, Bristol, Grantham in Lincolnshire and Staffordshire.

Wandsworth police’s post has received more than 350 comments and over 1,400 shares at the time of writing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 and quote the reference number 01WW/638852.
