FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Madera police say a suspect tried to hide from them by spray-painting his face.

Officers say Jose Espinoza, 23, ran from a stolen car Saturday evening. They arrested him later in the night after he tried to get away a second time.

Investigators say this time, Espinoza spray-painted his face black in an effort to camouflage himself. It obviously did not work.

Espinoza was arrested and taken to the Madera County Jail.
