A fugitive in Australia who made headlines for his highly-identifiable face tattoos was finally arrested Wednesday after two weeks on the lam.

Jaimes Sutton, recognizable by his bizarre forehead “beast” tat, was tracked down in a home in New South Wales around 2:45 p.m. local time, according to news.com.au.

The 24-year-old suspect updated his Facebook profile picture earlier this week to a selfie in which the lower half of his face is covered, the report said.

Sutton’s arrest came after the Murray River Police District was mocked for asking for the public’s help to find the man with the distinctive face tats.

The department posted his scowling mugshot in a Facebook post on Sept. 28 along with the plea for help locating Sutton, who was on the run after skipping a court date for charges of domestic violence assault and property damage. He was wanted on two outstanding warrants.

The post drew a lot of laughs from social media users.

“Keep your eyes open for this man. He’ll be extremely hard to spot in a crowd,” one Facebook respondent snarked.

Others sarcastically inquired about more details to help identify him, like his height, clothing and eye color.

“I’m gonna need a description if you want my help to find him,” one FB user wrote.

Some joked directly about Sutton’s interesting ink.

“When your toddler gets hold of a permanent marker,” a Twitter user teased.

“It reminds me of doing a poster in primary school!” another poster wrote.

While on the lam, Sutton updated his Facebook profile picture earlier this week to a selfie in which the lower half of his face is covered, according to news.com.au.

“Cops won’t even recognize ya now bra,” one person commented sarcastically.

Following his Wednesday arrest, Sutton was refused bail and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
