Police searching for robbery suspect with giant UK tattoo

ludlow-bank-robbery-jpg

Police in Ludlow, Kentucky are searching for Matthew Wolfinbarger, a 26-year-old man suspected of robbing Huntington Bank back on April 10. Investigators were able to identify Wolfinbarger from surveillance footage, in which he’s wearing the same hat as he is in pictures on his Facebook page. He can also be identified from this huge UK tattoo on his back:

See, tattoos can always come back to bite you.

    Pretty sure Big Bubba and the other boys will put the “I Bleed Blue” theory to the test during his first week in the pen.

    I don’t get defacing your body with a tattoo. Too each their own I guess. Large volumes of these morons are being produced unfortunately. Crime is never the quick fix for your problem. Get a job. Discuss your problems with your family, friends, church if you belong. Help is there, don’t do something stupid before you seek help first.

    Welcome to the new surveillance state where law enforcement’s facial recognition software is used on social networks. And people willfully participate by having Facebook pages. Fools…

    All points bulletin on a 26 year old caucasian male with a UK hat.

    Nice tat. However, I have a feeling that it will slowly start looking like a bull’s eye.

    The most boring robbery ever.

      teller – “can i help you sir?”

      robber – “umm, yeah. ***yawn*** ummm, give me all your money, i guess.”

    If there’s a prison for the criminally stupid, this guy should be in it.

    Remember “Dumb Crook” news. This guy certainly qualifies.

    I can see why he had to rob a bank. Tattoos like that can’t be cheap, right?

    and we try to make fun of Louisville fans for these kind of things

      Did you happen to go to the UK/UL game at Commonwealth last year? If you did, did you happen to watch fans for each school? By your comment, I take it you didn’t…otherwise, you would have never made that comment.

      But he’s actually just a UofL troll acting like a UK fan.

    Ha Noel…I was thinking the same thing. He looks like a UofL fan who got the wring tattoo.

    I guess a UL tattoo would say “I Bleed Red?”

    word is he introduced himself to the teller by saying “Hi I’m Kentucky Joe!”

    Clever girl!

    It must be really easy to rob a bank these days if this idiot can do it. I remember a few years ago a guy was arrested for robbing a bank. He didn’t even have a weapon. He just walked in and demanded money, without making any threats, and they just forked it over. My defense would be, “I asked for it and they gave it to me. How is that a robbery?”

      Anybody can rob a bank. The question is, can you avoid being identified and caught? This guy obviously is subconsciously crying out for help. He wanted to get caught to put an end to whatever death spiral his life is in.

    It would be a better story if it were a UL tattoo.

    Why would you post this on a UK website? Puts a black eye on the fan base and shows ignorance. Never give fuel to the enemy. Duh!

    maybe one of the jailhouse tat artistes can scribble a “D” and an “E” on either end of his UK; too bad he wasn’t a UConn fan…the phonetically simple

    maybe he’ll get a cell with the robber from cincy who’s pic was on the news a couple of years ago, who had “BONAFIDE” boldly tattooed across his forehead.
