A man who was the subject of a police sketch that went viral almost overnight has been arrested, said Deputy Jeff Springer with the Lamar County Sheriff's Department.

Deputy Jeff Springer of the Lamar County Sheriff's Department says Glenn Edwin Rundles, 32, the subject of a police sketch that went viral almost overnight, has been arrested.

Two weeks ago, the department released a sketch of a suspect wanted for robbing two women at knife-point on Jan. 16 in Paris, Texas.

The sketch got more attention than the crime. The drawing looked a lot like a cartoon, a fact not lost on national media outlets. Some described the suspect as looking more like a Muppet than a man.

A Paris police officer, however, noticed a similarity between the man in the sketch and a known person of interest in the case, according to the eParis Extra.
