Jose Espinoza Arrested Despite Disguising Himself With Spray Paint: Cops

A suspected car thief thought he had a surefire way to avoid arrest: He spray-painted his face black.



Spoiler alert: It didn't work.



Police in Madera, California, arrested Jose Espinoza, 23, on Saturday after he fled from a stolen car parked near his home.



He returned to his house a little while later, but this time his face was covered in black spray paint in an attempt to disguise himself, according to Newser.



There was a problem with his plan.



“He spray-painted his face black and attempted to hide against a white wall in the home’s yard,” Madera Police spokesman Josiah Arnold, said according to Fox6Now.com.



A post on the Madera Police Department's Facebook page noted: "The camouflage was ineffective."



A bottle of spray paint was found at Espinoza's house and turned in as evidence.



Espinoza was charged with receiving known stolen property, and theft and unlawful taking or driving of a vehicle, according to KTLA TV. His bail is set at $35,000.
