As I write this, 40-year-old wanted man Robert Wooten has not been caught by police. But something tells me that police won’t have a tough time identifying him once they do eventually catch up to him. And why do I believe that? Because Wooten has his damn social security number tattooed on his forehead.

Wooten, a career criminal, is wanted for stealing cigarettes from a Valero Corner Store. Oh, and he did it twice. According to KFOR, an employee was forced to close the convenience store after the register went down. And this is where things got weird.


Officers said several customers, including Wooten, were waiting outside when the store later re-opened. As the group walked in, the suspect allegedly followed the employee and asked him a series of strange questions. Court documents obtained by KIAH quote the suspect asking, “You care about your life?”

That’s when deputies said Wooten lifted his shirt, revealing a firearm tucked into his waistband on the right side. He demanded the employee give him various brands of cigarettes and the victim complied, investigators said.

The suspect returned to the same store on Nov. 4 to rob more cigarettes, according to police reports.

But not only does this idiot have his social security tattooed on his forehead, he also has Houston’s area code, 713, tattooed on his neck. Boy, he’s sure making it easy on cops.

And if you’re curious, here’s some of the “wonderful” things Wooten has done in his past:  indecent exposure, aggravated robbery, violation of a protective order due to violence, burglary and numerous drug-related charges.

Here’s hoping police catch up to him soon.
