The message this “white” beast apparently wants to get across to anyone who dares gaze upon his shiny ugly forehead is clear.
According to the Shasta County Jail, Patrick Francis Brooks is being held without bond on charges of burglary, receiving stolen property, forgery and violating the terms of his parole for a previous conviction.
Brooks was arrested by the Redding Police Department on July 11 after he tried to cash a forged check from Cottonwood Bible Baptist Church. According to authorities, his artsy childish body art played a large part in his arrest.
The owner of the check-cashing store told police he was initially suspicious of Brooks because of his custom body art, and his skepticism grew when he noticed someone had crossed out the church’s telephone number on the check.
Contacted by the check-cashing merchant, the pastor of the church named on the check confirmed it was from his church but said he did not write it. During a subsequent search of the church, authorities discovered someone had broken in and stolen several checkbooks and more than $200 in cash.
