Police: Suspect Tried to Hide from Thermal Sensors in a Pile of Manure

But…it works in the movies! Why not in real life? On the run from a police helicopter, a man in Wiltshire, UK hid inside a manure pile:

The 34-year-old Lithuanian man, from Ilford, Essex, was found “face-down in the dung” by officers after abandoning his van in Manton near Marlborough. [...]

According to a police spokesperson, the suspect had been hot from running and was easily detected on thermal imaging cameras hiding in a manure heap at Red Barn Farm at Manton.
