thief becomes rent-free guest of his favorite state

Sean Roberts, 19, isn't the brightest bulb on the tree, but he sure loves his home state of Florida. In fact, he loves it so much that he got the outline of Florida tattooed prominently on his face. Since the map of Florida isn't one of the most common facial tattoos, Sean is quite recognizable and memorable.

This week, a mobile home in Tampa, Florida was robbed by two armed gunmen. The robbers entered the residence at 5AM and forced the residents into a bathroom. Then, the two stole an array of prescription drugs, electrical equipment and cash.

Stupidly (but fortunately), one of the gunmen forgot to cover his face when he entered the house. So, the victims didn't have any trouble identifying the guy with a a tattoo of Florida on his face. For added identification purposes, Sean also has a tattoo of his nickname, "Crazy Cracker."

It looks like Sean will be spending a few years as a live-in guest of his favorite state.
