Crime Stoppers of Southwest Oklahoma posted a picture on its Facebook page asking for the public to help identify the man in the photo who is accused of stealing a credit card and going on a $10,000 shopping spree. But the photo they posted caused the man to have an... altered skin stone giving him the appearance of a real life Smurf, which they poked at in the post.

We're assuming the photo was a screenshot from a business's security camera, which we all know can often make some wonky images. So Crime Stoppers of Southwest Oklahoma decided to have a little bit of fun with this one.

And what's even better is that commenters had some funny takes on the photo!

One user said the man had an appearance of a particular Marvel character.
