Face tattoos give away wanted man

When a wanted suspect lied to police about his name, it was written all over his face — his face tattoos gave away his true identity and he got caught with drugs.

On Monday morning, police spotted a man they believed to be wanted on a warrant. The suspect entered a business on the 700 block of 10th Street, and when he emerged he was arrested.

Police say he was wanted for threatening to cause death, pointing a firearm and breach of probation.

The suspect gave police a false name, but was identified due to distinct tattoos on his face.

When searched, he was found with bear spray, $200 cash, a digital scale, five individually wrapped gram packages of cocaine and a small amount of methamphetamine. The street value of the drugs is about $500.

A 23-year-old Brandon man is charged with the original offences from the warrant, plus possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and possession of cocaine and methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.

The accused was taken to jail for a court appearance on Tuesday.
