Two policemen dressed as Batman and Robin captured a suspected drugs offender - in a bizarre sting operation.
The Dynamic Duo - Sgt Tony Smith and PC Mike Holman - pulled on the superhero outfits in a bid to unsettle the suspected baddies.
They pretended to be drunks looking for a fancy dress party and knocked on the door of the suspect's home.
Those inside refused to answer the door to the loud, comically dressed visitors - which was what the officers wanted.
Batman and Robin then went around the back of the property in Weymouth, Dorset, while seven uniformed officers went to the front door.
Those inside the house were PLEASED to see the policemen and complained to them about the fancy dress drunks. They then invited the officers in.
However, one of the men inside the house ran out of the back door on seeing the policeman - to where the superheroes were waiting for him.
Batman - Sgt Smith - gave chase, jumped over a fence and BIFF, POW, THWACK, arrested him.
PC Kevin Eames, said: "The people opened the door immediately and said that they had been alarmed by some drunken people in fancy dress in their garden.
"So the ruse was successful and we were let in."
