There are some pretty bad disguises if you’re going to rob an apartment: A clear, plastic bag. A stocking that cuts off the air to your brain. Or maybe a mask of yourself. But at the very least, you can easily take these off. Permanent marker, on the other hand, is more, well, permanent. The AP reports that Iowa cops had no problem identifying the ‘permanent marker bandits’ thanks to their markered-up faces.
From the AP:
Inside the car, officers found two men with their faces blackened with permanent marker. Police said the caller described two men with painted faces attempting to break into an apartment Friday night before driving off.
Matthew McNelly, 23, and Joey Miller, 20, were arrested at gunpoint after officers were told they might be armed. Neither man had a weapon. McNelly and Miller were each charged with attempted second-degree burglary. Both men were released after posting bond.
Halloween came a little early for these clowns.
