PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) – Police say a suspect in a Colorado home invasion had the evidence written all over his face.

A tattoo on the upper lip of 20-year-old Anthony Brandon Gonzales led to his arrest last week in the home invasion of an Elvis impersonator in Pueblo County.

A witness told police that one of the invaders had “East Side” tattooed on his upper lip. Gonzales also has a “13” tattooed on his chin in the shape of a goatee. According to an affidavit, the tattoos were visible even though Gonzales was wearing a mask.

Gonzales was already in jail on a separate drug charge. Police have now charged him with the April burglary, too. Sgt. Eric Bravo said his distinctive tattoo led to the charge, saying, “it’s hard to miss him.”
