- Devon Bentley, 19, is wanted in connection with suspected burglary offences
- Fugitive described himself as a knock off Jim Carrey, likely owing to his fringe
A self-proclaimed Jim Carrey lookalike on the run from police has been taunting them online by asking for an award to hand himself in.
Devon Bentley, 19, is currently wanted by Staffordshire Police in connection with suspected burglary offences.
But as he continues to allude coppers, the teenager has taken to social media to mock them, repeatedly responding to a local news site’s post on the wanted appeal.
The 19-year-old from Normacot, who is still at large, wrote on Stoke-on-Trent Live’s page: ‘Is there a reward for his whereabouts?
‘I’m a B-Tech Jim Kerry bro,’ he added in reference to comedian Jim Carrey, before unhelpfully telling police: ‘I’m here sir.’

Bentley’s comedic ways and audacious comments clearly amused locals with hundreds deciding to share their take on the situation.
When one reader questioned why the police aren’t spending their time chasing on-the-run paedophiles and rapists, Devon replied: ‘Excuse me, I am not one of them.’
On reader quipped. ‘Some people think they’re a cut above the law.
Another added: ‘He must get tired of living on the Fringe of Society.’
A third said: ‘Stoke-on-Trent’s son-to-be hide-and-seek champion.’
Devon Bentley is on recall to prison, and anyone who knows his whereabouts should call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
