Wear off your fingerprints an have tiny footprints embossed on each fingertip. You can commit any crime you want and police will assume it was elves.

       Excellent.

       // police will assume it was elves //   

       Depending on the locality, the police will assume it was either someone black or Irish (see also Lephrechauns).   

       Again, depending on locality, these assumptions may not actually be incorrect; we seek merely to illustrate how their minds, if any, work.

       Alternatively, have tiny fingerprints embossed on your feet.   

       When the police study the crime scene, they'll conclude that you must have been walking on your hands, and therefore could not possibly have carried the stolen goods to the getaway vehicle.

       Won't anyone think of the Imps?   

       That would be impossible in any part of the Iberian peninsula, because Nobody Expects The Spanish Imp Position ...   

       Besides, the're armed. Their principal weapon is Fear; Fear and Surprise... their two principal weapons are Fear, Surprise and Ruthless Efficiency....

       Yes those things have always been Imp portent.   

       Alternative version has glove with foot print detail on finger tip(s). [+]

       Would it not make more sense to have someone else's fingerprints embossed onto yours?

       Baked. Fingerprints (someone else's, or completely synthetic) 3D printed onto PVC gloves.   

       First suggested in movies, now a Thing.

       Tiny finger versions available for micro hands Trump.

       Trump suffers from Arkless-Graham syndrome.

       Hmm, 1+ but jealous I hadn't thought of this myself.

       I thought it was feckless man syndrome?

       This elf crime is worrying. I vote we build a small wall.

       Great, another project goblin up the budget ...
