Wanted criminal on the run with very distinctive face tattoo

The mugshot of a man who’s wanted by police has incited considerable joy among the public after it was shared online.

Waikato Police in New Zealand are looking for 28-year-old Cody Keenan –– a man with a warrant out for his arrest and a very distinctive face tattoo.

The fugitive has the words “Mighty Mongrel Mob” across his face.

Keenan’s other features include a height of 170cm, a slim build and short dark hair.

However, it was unsurprisingly the face tattoo and not these psychical traits which drew the most comments when Waikato police shared the photo online.

Police warned that Keenan shouldn’t be approached.

“Thanks for the heads up, totally would have approached him,” one Facebook user joked. 

“Any identifying features?” another asked sarcastically.
