When traffic policemen in Florida’s Lee county stopped 20-year-old Kenzo Roberts, who was driving a Mercedes that had been reported stolen, he began to remove his own fingerprints by chewing them off and rubbing them against the car.

“The driver was using a fake ID, had a handgun and three fraudulent credit cards,” Lee county sheriff was quoted as saying on Sunday by abc13.com.

However, a fingerprint scanner identified Roberts and showed he had two felony warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. (IANS)
