Wanted ‘BTEC’ Jim Carey lookalike taunts cops on Facebook while on the run

A wanted teenager who is a self-confessed Jim Carrey lookalike is making a mockery of cops as he evades capture while taunting them via social media.

Resembling Lloyd Christmas in 'Dumb and Dumber', Devon Bentley is infuriating Staffordshire officers by replying to StokeonTrent Live's social media post about the police appeal to find him.

He has even asked them for a hefty reward to hand himself in.

All we currently know, is that the 19-year-old from Normacot, wanted in connection with suspected burglarly offences, is in the vicinity of his phone or a keyboard – but that doesn't give investigators much to go off.

A clearly-amused Bentley asked: "Is there a reward for his whereabouts? I'm a B-Tech Jim Kerry, bro." He added: "I'm here, sir."

While most people in his situation would lay low in an attempt to let the storm pass, in a testament to either his confidence or sheer ignorance, he's hiding in plain sight.

And he's even gone as far as engaging with members of the public.

When a furious Courtney Joyce asked why the police are not prioritising the capture of paedophiles and rapists, the concerned teen felt the need to clarify: "Excuse me, I am not one of them."

Unsurprisingly, some people greatly disagree with Bentley's actions.

An angry, Stefan Gidman, posted: "Some people think they're a cut above the law."

While an equally appalled Chris Steele wrote: "He must get tired of living on the Fringe of Society."

However, while a large chunk of the population is disgusted with the youngster's antics, others are finding the ongoing game of cat and mouse quietly amusing.

Sharon Crawford heralded Bentley as: "Stoke-on-Trent's son-to-be hide-and-seek champion."

But regardless, anyone who holds any knowledge as to where the 19-year-old is, should contact the police on 101 or make an anonymous call to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
