Earlier this week, Lancashire Police issued an appeal for members of the public to contact them if they recognised a man pictured on CCTV, in connection with a burglary at Burnley Cemetery offices on June 19.
The CCTV pictures of the man have since been withdrawn after a 24-year-old man was arrested.

Jordan, who was born in Burnley and went to school in Penwortham as well as Preston College, was tagged on Twitter over his similarity to the wanted man and retweeted the appeal, saying: “Ok, I’ve not been back home for about 6 week also I’ve got an alibi…”
Followers cheekily said: “We believe you!”
One said: “Im actually screaming lmfaoooooooo thats jokessss”.
