A "thief" wanted by police for alleged burglaries left a handwritten note on his front door urging officers to give him a call.
West Midlands Police tweeted a picture of the message they found taped to the outside the house of the "wanted" man, with a comment praising the team's persistence in tracing the individual.
Police working the Bushbury and Oxley neighbourhood patch in Wolverhampton said: "The team's persistence paid off with a little note left on a door from a wanted thief."
The "thief" left a name and contact telephone number - both redacted in the image posted to Twitter.
Officers said the matter would be resolved by Thursday.
In the note, the man said he would like "to meet you, like before, OK?"
It continued: "A friend in the street said you had been (officers, anyway).
"Ok - call me and I will come down and sort whatever out!
"After I finish work is best."
It ended: "So yes, just call me. Thanks."
