A lingerie thief’s back tattoo led to his arrest


Surveillance video clearly captured the tattoo on the man’s back just after he got out of a manager’s office and returned to the sales floor. Police was able to identify the wording “Perales” written in old English lettering as part of the robber’s back tattoo.

Police also got a shot of the man’s face which was later checked against their main Davenport database. The match was made to Jose Perales.

The tattoo was also a key piece of evidence which led Davenport Police straight to the alleged naked lingerie thief. Police made a search in the man’s residence and recovered some of the merchandise stolen from the lingerie store. Perales was arrested and charged with 3rd degree counts of theft.
