Skeleton Face Tattoo Thefts Baffle Police

Facial Skeleton Tattoo Fingers Storage Unit Thief

A Madison County, Illinois man has been charged with three felony burglary counts over recent thefts from storage units in Godwin, and a unique skeleton tattoo that covers his face helped police officials to link him to the thefts.

24-year old Adam Roberts has been charged with stealing merchandise from almost 30 different storage lockers in his hometown.

Madison County sheriff’s Capt. Mike Dixon calls the who thing “just odd.”

“It’s the oddest thing I’ve ever seen in 20-plus years of law enforcement,” Dixon told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I’ve seen horns on foreheads and stars on necks, but I’ve never seen a skull on a face.

“I can’t explain it.”

Police are asking anyone in the County who may have purchased items ranging from DVDs and fishing equipment to a vintage chest of drawers and televisions from a man with a skeleton tattoo covering his face to contact them with full details.

The Madison County Sheriff’s office is reporting that this is the first time in 20 years that a suspect has displayed such a tell-tale facial tattoo.

Roberts remains in jail after failing to be able to post bail and police are continuing their investigation that matches articles reported stolen with merchandise he sold.

Yesterday we reported about a man who got a Netflix Tattoo.

A lot of people have been upset with the limited content on Netflix, but the movie streaming company still has its supporters. One supporter in particular is Myron Robinson; a college student from Indiana. Rather than doing what most people do and tweeting about the company or liking them on Facebook, he got a tattoo on his upper body that says Netflix.

Following the tattoo he posted a picture of it on twitter that referenced the companies twitter account.
