Face-tattooed man accused in storage-unit thefts

GODFREY, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in Madison County are searching out anyone who may have bought things from an alleged burglar of storage units, and they're confident the purchasers will remember the seller.

Twenty-four-year-old Adam Roberts is accused of 3 felony counts of burglary related to thefts last month from as many as 28 storage units in his hometown of Godfrey.

What makes Roberts distinctive is the skeleton-style tattoo over his face - artwork sheriff's Capt. Mike Dixon calls "just odd."

Authorities say they've recovered $1,000 worth of stolen property taken in the break-ins, but they suspect Roberts or an accomplice may have sold other items.

Roberts is jailed on $60,000 bond. Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney.
