42-year-old Derrick Thompson is a cartoonist in West Sussex, England. He's single, and last year, he bought himself a sex doll on eBay. She's six feet tall, she's blonde, and he calls her Shela Louise.

And now, she fights crime too.

Derrick sells his art out of a little store, and earlier this month, he left Shela sitting on a couch in the store.

The cops are trying to track them down.
