Cops in Australia have located an alleged fugitive who had the word “beast” tattooed on his forehead, along with some extensive facial art, in a mugshot that went viral.
Late last month, the Murray River Police Department in New South Wales was on the lookout for a man identified as Jaimes Sutton, “who was wanted on two outstanding arrest warrants in relation to alleged traffic, property and domestic-related offenses,” News.com. au reported.
“Mr. Sutton, 24, quickly captured the attention of social media users, who said he ‘shouldn’t be hard to find’ thanks to a huge ‘BEAST’ face tattoo which ‘might make him stand out,'” the Sydney-based news outlet added.
Investigators arrested the suspect, who presumably didn’t have much of a disguise, on Wednesday afternoon at a residence. He was due in court on Thursday.
“Sutton’s arrest came after the Murray River Police District was mocked for asking for the public’s help to find the man with the distinctive face tats,” the New York Post explained.

“‘Does he have any distinguishing features?’ several people commented tongue in cheek after a local news station tweeted out his picture. ‘Please remember to be on the lookout for a man who resembles a postage stamp…’ another joked,” Fox News reported.
The above-referenced September 28 Facebook alert from the cops appears to have since been deleted.
The Daily Mail provided a purported history of the progression of the suspect’s tattoos.
Pictures posted online between 2014 and 2021 track Sutton’s slow transition from baby-faced teen to heavily-inked crook. Images from 2014 show Sutton’s face was relatively clear, aside from a few unintelligible tattooed scrawls on his neck. By 2018, he had a series of black shapes and words on his arms, legs, chest, stomach and cheeks. The initial outlines of BEAST could be seen on his forehead and “Sutto’s guilty” was written in large letters over his stomach. Three years later, Sutton had gone all-out. The only untouched areas of his face were sections above his top lip and near his jowls, around his eyes, and inside the bubble font on his forehead.
The suspect reportedly has a rap sheet that goes back eight years. He reportedly has “game over” branded on his knuckles.
Separately, several years ago, cops in Indiana were looking for a man who led them on a high-speed chase. He allegedly had the words “crime pays” tattooed on his forehead. He was subsequently arrested.
Here’s just a sample of the Twitter reaction to the inked Australian formerly on the lam:
“Can you give us a description of the suspect?” “Sorry officer, he looked like any other guy you see walking down the street.”

I don’t know how they ever identified him. Nothing about this guy stands out.

No one would have recognized him if he’d worn a fake mustache.
