A dumb car thief, Jose Espinoza, has been arrested even after he sprayed black paint on his face to avoid being detected.
But his luck ran out when he was found sitting in a stolen car that was parked close to his house.
According to the Madera Police, Espinoza fled from the area after learning that the police were investigating the scene.
But the officers laid ambush for him and waited near his home and when he eventually returned, he was arrested.
The black spray paint was confiscated as evidence.
