Bradley James Barton Wanted By Cumberland RCMP Gets Roasted Hard By Internet For Tattoos

“So we're looking for a 1980s school desk?”

Nova Scotia RCMP obtained a province-wide warrant Thursday for a man charged with theft and several other offences.

Police allege that Bradley James Barton, 34, of Pugwash, N.S. stole a volunteer firefighter's vehicle after it stopped to help him, according to a news release.

Barton is described as white, 6'1", 270 pounds, and has a shaved head and blue eyes, said police.

Cumberland District RCMP have obtained a warrant for the arrest of Bradley James Barton.

The most notable part of his appearance, however, is the abundance of tattoos all over his body, including his face.

On a Facebook post about Barton, people took time out of their day to make some jokes about his heavily modified appearance.

"So we're looking for a 1980s school desk?" one person commented.

"If he hides in my grandmothers Blue Willow China cabinet, you'll never see him....." another wrote.

"Every master criminal deserves a nickname... I give you 'the doodler,' another user said.

Others joked that he might be too inconspicuous for the public to find.

"Does he have any distinguishing features that will make him easy to spot?" one curious poster asked.

"has small mole on left hand," another user suggested.

And a few people had some theories about the origins of the tattoos.

"I saw him in the sharpie section of the Walmart," a Facebook user said.

"Oh man I hope that wasn't a permanent marker... I bet the child that drew on him is super grounded," a user joked.

Police are asking for the public's assistance to find Barton, but they say any witness should not approach him if he is located. He is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, theft under $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, mischief and breach of recognizance.

Cumberland District RCMP are asking anyone with information to call them at 902-447-2525. People who want to remain anonymous can call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or send a web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
