Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Kids Paid For Stolen Goods With Tattoos
A California man has been arrested in connection with a burglary operation where he allegedly paid two juveniles for stolen property with tattoos.
Sacramento police said Eugene Eaton, 20, was arrested on charges of violation of probation, tattooing subjects under 18 years of age, and for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to Capt. Daniel Hahn, an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old were arrested on burglary charges. Investigators then did a follow-up on the burglaries at Willow Glen Apartments in North Natomas, where Eaton lives.
Hahn said police found several laptops, video cameras and other items at Eaton's home, including tattooing equipment.
"This is not the first time we've seen teenagers stealing things. But this has to be the first time we've seen them stealing in exchange for tattoos," Hahn said.
Man breaks into home to cut off his pubic hair
A Greenwich man apparently felt guilty about practicing personal hygiene in a neighbor's home after he had broken into it, police said.
Manuel Gonzalez, 18, of 47 Locust St., broke into a Locust Street home Wednesday while the owner was away, cut his pubic hair and left the trimmings, police said. Remorseful about his actions, the man later confessed to the woman, who then called police.
Metally Ill Woman
Sergaye Lafayette, 23, allegedly carved a letter "S" onto her 15-month-old's buttocks, Sacramento police said.
A doctor at the UC Davis Children's Hospital's CARE Diagnostic and Treatment Center called officials about the scar.
The mutilation appears to have taken place about a week ago, according to a police report.
The child has been placed into protective custody, police said.
Police said she had been taking care of her three children, who she does not have custody of. The children were taken to the medical center for standard check-ups. That's when the doctor found the "S" carving on the 15-month-old.
It's unknown what kind of instrument was used to make the wound.
