Unusual drawing helps police identify theft suspect

But a few days later, police said the suspect had been identified as 44-year-old Hunt Phuoc Nguyen.

He was further described as having wide cheekbones, a pointed chin and black, straight hair covering his ears.

The hand-drawn sketch was ridiculed online, with one person claiming it was singer Jason Mraz.
