    I would love to get a good look at this suspect, however the picture only shows him being about 1/2″ high, even in Full screen. It is very difficult to see who the person is from such a small image. Is there any way to view this photo enlarged? I think it would greatly contribute to identifying suspects, as the images are always extremely small! Also, there is no news station that publishes these photos in a larger size, it would help us help the community.
