Lingerie Thief: Nabbed by Tattoo!

by at . Comments

A man's plot to illegally try on woman's lingerie and then sneak into the night in a red dress and blonde wig was foiled this week when that same man forgot to cover up his tattoo in front of store surveillance cameras.

Authorities in Davenport, Iowa confirm that Jose Angel Perales broke into Dr. John's Lingerie Boutique around 4 a.m. on February 17.

He grabbed some items from the shelves; headed into the manager's office; and then emerged in his birthday suit, according to surveillance video footage.

The 24-year old then tried on clothes for a bit, donned the aforementioned outfit and exited… only to later be apprehended because the cameras caught a clear picture of his back tattoo, which spells out his last name in old English letters.

Perales was arrested Friday and charged with third degree burglary and third degree theft.

There's a lesson somewhere in here, kids.
