Weird Tats Lead To Arrest Of Suspect In Home Invasion
"A tattoo on the upper lip of 20-year-old Anthony Brandon Gonzales led to his arrest last week in the home invasion of an Elvis impersonator in Pueblo County.
A witness told police that one of the invaders had `East Side` tattooed on his upper lip. Gonzales also has a "13" tattooed on his chin in the shape of a goatee. According to an affidavit, the tattoos were visible even though Gonzales was wearing a mask. read more
Armed Robbery 101: Get rid of any distinctive tattoos. Blend in with the crowd. Aim for a nondescript appearance.
Gonazles` distinctive tats will serve him well if he decides to show the circus, but in the real world they mark him as a fool.
This idiot needs to take a remedial course in armed robbery, with a tattoo shaped like a goatee he stands out even in a crowd of thugs.
I`m that surprised that this tattooed idiot was already behind bars on a separate drug charge. Maybe some of the older prisoners can give him some practical advice, like grow a beard to cover his tattoo.
Home invasion of an Elvis impersonator? Sounds like a movie comedy starring Jack Black.
If this hapless armed robber escapes from prison, the cops will know where to look for him: East Side!
