Thief caught ‘green-faced’ by UK police

In a high-tech trap set up by British police, a thief who broke into a car was busted after a device in the vehicle sprayed him with an invisible, odourless liquid that glows green in ultraviolet light.

Yafet Askale, 28, broke into a police ‘trap car’, which was left in Harlesden, northwest London.

When Askale stole items from the car, including a laptop, he activated a spray system which covered his face and arms with a traceable liquid called SmartWater, which contains a dye that becomes visible under ultra violet light.
