Police warn public to stop mocking suspect's hair”

However, some mocked the police warning, with one person commenting, "Can't work out what's thinner".

The 21-year-old's extraordinary haircut triggered an avalanche of remarks and memes when his picture was posted on Facebook by Gwent Police.

Last week Gwent Police posted an image of Jermaine Taylor from Newport who breached his licence conditions after being released from jail in December.

Taylor originally received a three-year sentence for being concerned in supplying cocaine after being sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on 4 September 2017.

"Please remember that harassing, threatening and abusing people on social media can be against the law", police wrote on Facebook, alongside a mugshot of the sparsely-haired suspect, Jermaine Taylor. "However, when the line is crossed from being amusing to abusive, we do have to make sure we are responsible and remind people to be careful about what they write on social media".

One joked about police "combing the area" while another suggested detectives look in Edinburgh, which is homing the fringe festival.

"Our advice is to be as careful on social media as you would in any other form of communication".

The large number of comments prompted Gwent Police to warn users that posting abusive material could be against the law. Please refrain from making jokes/negative comments.

Taylor, from Newport, breached his licence conditions after being released from prison in December previous year.
