This is what I found on FOXNEWS.COM:
British police jumped on the social media bandwagon by taking part in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, creating memes of suspects wanted for a number of offenses, including burglary.
Cleveland Police UK in northeastern England shared four images of 32-year-old Scott Mizsei, deeming each appropriate for his profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram or Tinder.
The department nodded to the Durham Constabulary in the neighboring county, which used the Dolly Parton Challenge last week to ask the public for help finding Paul Bishop.
Dolly Parton went viral for an Instagram post in which she bragged about being the kind of woman who could do anything.
She also shared images of herself, labeling each appropriate for different social media sites: LinkedIn (business professional), Facebook (family-friendly), Instagram (stylized), and Tinder (sexy).
The post sparked thousands of copy-cat responses.
Cleveland Police UK took advantage, tweeting:
“Have you seen wanted man Scott Mizsei, 32?
“He is wanted in connection with a number of offences including aggravated burglary.
“Do not approach him if you see him & call 101 with info RE his whereabouts.”

Durham Constabulary’s similar post read;
“Have you seen Paul Bishop?
“We’d like to speak to him in connection with a suspected burglary which occurred in December.
“If you have seen him or know where he is, please call Peterlee Police team on 101.”

Another police department, Sarasota PD, joined the fun with pics of K9 officers. They tweeted:
“Our K9s couldn’t resist the latest viral challenge 😂🐕🐾🚔 They meme …. business (see what we did there?”
