This Robbery Suspect Was Dumb Enough to Get His Social Security Number Tattooed on His Forehead


  • Houston Police Department
The Houston Police Department is searching for a man suspected to be behind a string of robberies. That may not be too difficult since the suspect has his Social Security number tattooed on his forehead.

According to Houston's KPRC, investigators believe Robert Wooten, 40, recently robbed a pawn shop. Although he tried covering up his tattoo, police say they recognized Wooten in surveillance video.

In addition to his Social Security tattoo, Wooten also has his area code – "713" – tattooed on his neck.

Police called Wooten a career criminal and believe he's connected to at least a half-dozen armed robberies since October 2017.
