Dumb Criminal Story: Serial iPhone Thief Caught, IDd by Obvious Tattoo

A man accused of stealing iPhones from up to 15 AT&T stores in South Florida probably shouldve been easier to catch, considering he has a tattoo on his forehead that says Im me.”

Police finally caught up with Joseph Eric Williams, 19, last night in Miami Gardens, Fla., after a two-month crime spree that saw him get away with a few dozen iPhones that he allegedly stole simply by walking into stores and grabbing them, then taking off. Authorities say he hit AT&T retail outlets in three different counties.

A Crimestoppers tip led them to Williams, whose Im me” tattoo will likely go down in criminal folklore. He is being held on $13,000 bond and faces a minimum of four counts of grand theft.
