The man might as well have had a big arrow saying "here I am, it was me".Man's Tattooed Face Gives Him Away
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - It didn't take the sleuthing skills of a Miss Marple or Sherlock Holmes to figure out who was peddling marijuana to teenagers in Market Square. Police said 28-year-old Eric Hardcastle's tattooed eyebrows, head and cheeks made him easy to identify.
Late Monday night, a teenager reported being approached by a man with a heavily tattooed face with three baggies of marijuana for sale. Officers said they found Hardcastle _ who has a row of arrows over each brow, a tattoo on his forehead and scalp and matching markings on each cheek _ soon afterward at a convenience store.
"He is definitely an individual that you would notice," said Lt. Rodney McQuate.
Hardcastle quickly went from living in a homeless shelter to a jail cell. After pleading guilty Tuesday to misdemeanor drug possession, Hardcastle was sentenced to six months in the Rockingham County jail.
Despite his run-in with the law, Hardcastle said he likes Portsmouth, where he landed two weeks ago after riding with a trucker.
"I want to make it here," he said. http://www.comcast.net/news/strange/index.jsp?cat=STRANGE&fn=/2007/08/22/745745.html
