Roaring Creek tattoo artist caught with unlicensed firearm

Edilberto Madrid

A tattoo artist from Roaring Creek was arrested on Wednesday in Ladyville. Edilberto Madrid was along with another person in a small wooden house located on Jackson Avenue when police made a surprise visit. Madrid and the other person who was dressed in a blue shirt fled the house, but police set chase and were able to catch Madrid on Poinsettia Avenue. A search on him produced a Thunder nine millimeter pistol marked Industria Argentina as well as seventeen live rounds of nine millimeter ammunition. According to police, Madrid’s police record includes a charge of attempted murder for an incident in Belmopan five years ago. Madrid claims he was born in Belize, but migrated twice to Guatemala and then returned three years ago to live with his mother in Roaring Creek. In a situation report, police say they do not believe his claim that he was going to the United States, but that instead he has been committing a string of robberies in Ladyville.

    This idiot is a tattoo carpet and not a tattoo artist. I know this fool from small and all he has done is terrorize some villagers here. He deserves the worst. Cut off his balls and his tongue, both hands and let him loose to die. Murderer!!!
