Sound bizarre, right? But this is exactly what happened when police were able to analyze Carl Stewart's fingerprints from a picture of him with the dairy product. This ultimately led to Carl being charged for supplying a range of drugs and transferring criminal property.

After getting caught, Carl confessed to his crime and now faces prison time of 13 years and 6 months.

“His palm and fingerprints were analysed from this picture and it was established they belonged to Stewart."

“Stewart was handed a substantial sentence of 13 years and six months, and this should serve as a stark warning to anyone involved in this criminality that there are serious consequences."
