caught by a tattooed lip

memo: if you have unusual words tattooed on your face and decide to rob someone, you probably should consider wearing a mask that covers your tattoo.

On April 19, an Elvis impersonator named Robert Segura reported that his home had been robbed by two men who were carrying swords and knives. Segura said the men were wearing masks, but the mask didn't cover a distinctive tattoo on one of the men. The tattoo said, "East Side" and was located over the robber's top lip.

Seven days later, Anthony Brandon Gonzales was arrested for unrelated offenses-- and the police immediately noticed the mustache sized tattoo on his upper lip that said, East Side. (He also has the number 13 in the shape of a goatee on his chin.)

So, while Gonzalez was in Pueblo County (Colorado) prison, being held for the first charges, he was rearrested for the April 19th robbery. He is now being charged with an additional count of first-degree burglary.
