Men use permanent markers as disguise

October 30, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Police in Iowa say two men tried to disguise themselves by drawing on their faces with black permanent marker.Matthew McNelly, 23, and Joey Miller, 20, are suspected of breaking into a home in the town of Carroll last week.

When police stopped a vehicle matching a caller's description, they found the men in hooded sweatshirts with marker scribbled all over their faces.

They face charges of attempted burglary. McNelly is also charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Police believe they chose that home because one of the men suspected his girlfriend had a relationship with a man who lived there.
