OTTAWA -- If it's true, this is one stupid crook.

Cops are circulating an image they believe a break-in suspect took of himself with a photocopier -- during the break-in.

It happened very early Sunday at Dan Murphy Ford on Bankfield Rd. in Manotick.

The man got in to the dealership by prying open a door -- which triggered the alarm system.

He made off with some items, but police have not said what was stolen.

Investigators believe he photocopied his face and left it behind.

He's described as white with facial hair and was wearing a toque with a football logo on it.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ottawa Police robbery detectives at 613-236-1222 or make an anonymous tip to Crimestoppers at 613-233-TIPS (8477).

Tips leading to an arrest or a charge, qualify for a cash reward of up to $2,000 -- enough to buy a photocopier.
