Suspects drew masks with marker pen
Two burglary suspects who drew 'masks' on their faces with a permanent marker pen have been arrested in the US.
A witness told police that two men with painted disguises were trying to break into an apartment in Carroll, Iowa.
The caller added that the pair, both wearing black hooded sweatshirts, drove off in a large white car, reports Sky News.
Police soon spotted a 1994 Buick Roadmaster that matched the vehicle description and stopped it.
They found two occupants with mask-like scribbling on faces, Iowa's Daily Times Herald reported.
Matthew Allan McNelly, 23, and Joey Lee Miller, 20, were arrested at gunpoint because of reports they might be armed, but neither man had a weapon.
Both suspects were charged with attempted second-degree burglary and have been released on bail.
McNelly was also charged with driving while intoxicated. The pair are due in court on November 10 for a preliminary hearing.
