Criminal turns up on talent show

From: The News
The judges were not the only ones to spot talent on a popular TV show - so did the police.

It was hardly the kind of career that a 24 year old man from Bytom, southern Poland, had in mind when he decided to appear on the popular Poland’s Got Talent television show.

His singing did not impress the jury but his performance caught the eye of …. the police.

“A few weeks ago, one of our police officers watched a television show and to his surprise he saw a wanted criminal, who has been in hiding since September last year,” says a spokesman for the Bytom police force Adam Jakubiak. The man was wanted for robbery, theft and damage of property.

The watchful policeman who recognized the criminal aspiring to become a pop star received a cash prize from his superiors.
