Marked manhunt.

A BLUNDERING burglar was caught - because his tattoos named his home town and date of birth.

Richard Thompson, 35, was nicked after a witness saw his tattoo before he stole house keys from a pub table and carried out a break-in.

Thompson, of Barry, South Wales, had "Made in Barry" on his chest and his birthday around his belly button.

He was jailed for two years at Cardiff Crown Court.

Prosecutor Nuhu Gobir said: "He was barechested when he sat down by the victim in the pub."
