Car thief caught on cctv has name & date of birth tattooed on neck!

Here's something funny I saw on the evening news tonight - a car thief who had his name and date of birth tattooed on his neck was caught after CCTV images of him were used to track him down. 21 year old Aaron Evans pleaded guilty at Bristol Magistrates' Court to breaking into a covert capture car in the city. The car had been left by Avon and Somerset Police officers with a covert camera concealed inside, which took pictures of Evans.

Evans, an illiterate man of no fixed address, was sentenced to seven months in prison. Supt Ian Wylie said: "Criminals won't be tolerated in Bristol and we will keep catching them and bringing them before the courts. We get such excellent images from these cameras that there is often, and never more so than in this case, no doubt who the criminal is." Talk about making it easy - you couldn't make it up!
