Houston police searching for man with social security number on forehead

Because Wooten has his damn social security number tattooed on his forehead.

His mug shot shows several distinctive tattoos, including the "713" Houston area code across his throat.

Authorities have been using tattoos to identify suspects for years, but the case of Robert Charles Wooten, 40, may take the cake.

The robberies date back to last October, where Wooten allegedly walked into a convenience store and asked an employee at gunpoint, "You care about your life?" while demanding cigarettes, KIAH said, citing court documents. The store re-opened and Wooten, along with a group of people, entered the store.

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.

A report from a clerk at the Valero convenience store on West 43rd Street told of how Wooten asked the clerk, "Do you value your life?" as he showed the clerk a handgun he had tucked into the waistband of his trousers. Deputies said the suspect then lifted his shirt and revealed a firearms in his waistband. He demanded the employee give him a various assortment of cigarettes.

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

For any aspiring identity thieves, the number tattooed across Wooten's forehead is "463-15-8781".

Anyone with information regarding Wooten's whereabouts are asked to call Crime Stoppers of Houston on 713 222 8477 or submit a tip online at http://www.crimestoppers.org. Tipsters will remain anonymous.
