Large Inmate With Tasmanian Devil Tattoo Caught

NOXUBEE COUNTY, Miss.–A large man with at least one unusual tattoo didn’t come back to the Noxubee County Community Work Center when he was supposed to Monday. The Miss. Dept. of Corrections said 44-year-old John Jason Lee had a weekend pass but did not show up when his visiting time was over. He has now been caught.

Lee was captured in the Mathiston area about midnight Tuesday, according to Corrections. There was no word on whether or not his tattoos helped ID him.

Besides the “Taz” tat, Johnson also has one that’s a heart with the word “Mom” in it. Both tattoos are on his arm.
