Drug dealer caught by a tattoo


A drug dealer in Brazil has been caught after forcing more than 70 addicts to tattoo his surname on their bodies.

Mario Sergio Freudenthal told users he would sell them drugs to them only if they agreed to be marked. Motivated by a ‘huge ego’, he was caught after police spotted his name inked on robbery suspects and dead bodies found in the Brazilian town of Itapetinga.

It was easy for the police to find him as he was the only person called Freudenthal in the town.
