Tattoo reveals suspect's deception

DELAND, Fla., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a woman who gave a false name following a courthouse parking lot crash was identified thanks to a tattoo of her birth date.

DeLand police said Daysha Moore, 27, gave her sister's information to officers after crashing into a car in the Volusia County Courthouse at 8:58 a.m. Tuesday, but an officer looked up the sister's information on his computer and discovered Moore did not match the photo in the system, The Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal reported Thursday.

Moore noticed an officer making note of her tattoo, reading "01-14-1985," and admitted to giving the incorrect name and birth date to the officer. She gave her real name and birthday, which matched the tattoo.

Police discovered Moore's license was suspended and the suspect admitted to lying about her identity to conceal that fact.

Moore was charged with giving a false name to a law enforcement officer and received citations for unsafe backing and driving with a suspended license.
