(KGTV) - Did NYPD use a picture of actor Woody Harrelson to catch a thief using facial recognition software?
The actual security footage of a beer thief was too pixelated and produced no match in the department's facial recognition software. But since he looked like Woody Harrelson, they put a photo of the actor into the database. It produced several matches and led to an arrest.
The NYPD says it never arrests someone on facial recognition alone.
