27-year-old Corey Hughes was serving time on a weapons charge when he escaped from prison. KTVU2 News posted an alert on their Facebook page that said that the man was wanted and last seen in a work crew in Stockon, California. The post now has over 20,000 shares and 5,000 comments, but not because of the crimes the man committed. People just cannot stop cracking jokes about the man's mugshot. Why, you ask? Well...
This is the photo that KTVU posted on Monday.
“I’m glad he doesn’t have any distinguishing marks or tattoos that would make him easy to find,” Rich Glover wrote.
Along the same lines, Mark Lemmerman said, “Does he have any distinguishing features that might help the public recognize him?”
Could his tattoo idea have stemmed from a love of Halloween?
Jesse Littlejohn thought so. They commented,
“Tattoo artist: What do you want?
Corey: Halloween Fo LIFE!!! 💯💯💯
Tattoo artist: Say no more.”
Mike Thompson sent out a warning.
He said, “Could be wearing a disguise so watch out.” It’s totally possible.
You’ve gotta stay alert, folks.
People threw some major shade at the way Corey's mugshot came out.
Sal Mariscal wrote, “Hi my name is Corey. I’m a 27 year old single guy. I just left my job to pursue a different career. My hobbies include tattoos, running and I especially love the outdoors. I’m sorry for the quality of the photo attached I had a friend take it for me. CHEERS!”
Corey Tole didn’t even want to be associated with this fellow Corey. He said, “As a representative of the collective Coreys or Corys, we hereby revoke this particular Corey’s status and claim no affiliation within our ranks. Thank you.”
Where is Corey now?
“If he only had some distinguishing characteristics like a scar, a birthmark or a mole… could help to catch him,” Johnathan Lucero pondered.
Jay Walther editorialized on what he thought was going on over the police radio: “Dispatch: “Be on the lookout for a white male, 6 foot…Umm you know what…the guy has frickin’ skull tattoo over his entire face, find him.”
People seriously could not stop commenting on this post.
