One man’s strange attempt to hide from police failed when he tried to spray paint his face in an effort to blend into “the background” after stealing a car.
The suspect, Jose Espinoza, tried to escape from police not once, but twice after stealing a car in Madera, California, reports The Huffington Post. During his second getaway, Espinoza tried to throw the police off by spray-painting his face black.
It did not go as planned and he was arrested for theft, receiving stolen property, and unlawful driving of a vehicle. His bail was set at $35,000.
