Man’s Tattoo Foils Fake ID

GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) – Police say a Pennsylvania man who tried to hide his identity was given away by his tattoo ink.

The Johnstown Tribune- Democrat reports the man was riding inside a car that was stopped in Greensburg Wednesday on the suspicion of being involved in a drug deal.

Police say the man identified himself as “Chad Majors,” but the officer recognized him from an arrest in 2012. The man denied giving the officer a false name, but the officer could see the man's actual last name tattooed on his neck.

Police seized drugs and cash from the car, and the man has been charged with drug offenses and false identification.

He did not have an attorney listed in online records.

Police say the driver is facing a drunken driving charge.
