It could have been worse. A few weeks down the line you could be watching Police5 (is it still called that?) with your GF (is she still...?, no I won't go down that road) and they say:-
"We'd like some help with a case in <PeteDraper's Locality>. I'd like you to cast your mind back to <the date of Pete's Punt>. A robbery took place at <such and such a warehouse> where several pallets of cheap perfume were stolen. In their haste the robbers broke quite a few bottles making their escape. If you saw anything, or <big grin from the presenter> smelt anything suspicious that night then give us a call. Maybe your partner went out that evening with some excuse about getting some beer from a supermarket, then came back and immediately had a shower. Perhaps he is sitting next to you right now, and perhaps he is uncharacteristically nervous as you sit watching this programme. Give us a ring, you know the number, so that we can rule him out of our investigation."
