Police in Houston hope a wanted suspect will be easy to catch since the man has his social security number tattooed on his forehead.

Investigators believe Robert Wooten, described as a career criminal, was behind the recent armed robbery at a pawn shop. They told Houston media outlet KPRC that Wooten has his social security number tattooed on his forehead and his area code on his neck.

However, he may have regretted getting the tattoos since police say he covered them with bandages during the pawn shop robbery. Still, they say they were able to identify him through surveillance video.

Wooten has not been found and officers say he is "unpredictable."
