  • Jermaine Taylor

That only provoked a fresh round of mockery and a stream of invective by libertarians who were outraged that the police would seriously consider wasting time and money prosecuting people for lampooning a drug dealer's haircut.

The 21-year-old's extraordinary haircut triggered an avalanche of remarks and memes when his picture was posted on Facebook by Gwent Police.

Jermaine Taylor, 21, from Newport in Wales is wanted on recall to prison.

Social medias users have been warned they could face prosecution for mocking the man's unusual do and receding hairline.

Another quipped: "Looks like his hairline is on the run too".

However, other comments prompted Gwent police to issue a follow-up statement on Facebook telling users to remember that harassing, threatening and abusing people on social media could be against the law.

Many users seemed undeterred, however, with one adding: "He was last seen in town - police are combing the area", and another joking: "He's vanished into thin hair".

But thousands of people took to social media to mock his unusual hairdo.

The photo of Taylor has been liked more than 9,000 times, commented on 80,000 times and shared 13,000 times.

By Monday morning, the force was back on Facebook to thank everyone who had liked, commented and shared the post "and welcome to our new global followers".

Taylor is still being sought by Gwent police and members of the public have been urged to contact them with any information about his whereabouts.
