A man with a tribal tattoo covering nearly all of his face was arrested Monday after an officer saw him lighting a crack pipe at a Boca Raton gas station, city police say.
Keith Diaferia’s tattoo earned him a spot on the Boca Raton Police Department’s Facebook page, with the caption declaring his photo the “Mugshot of the Day.”
The 54-year-old Boynton Beach man attracted an officer’s attention after getting out of his truck and into a BMW at the BP gas station on Glades Road. Suspecting drug use, the officer pulled up next to the BMW in an unmarked vehicle and peeked inside, according to Diaferia’s arrest report.
After seeing Diaferia put a clear pipe in his mouth and light it, he walked up to the car. Diaferia tried to hide the pipe.
The officer saw a bag of syringes in the lap of the driver, later identified as Jessica Supel, 32, of West Palm Beach. Inside her bag were seven needles, five bags of heroin, a crack cocaine rock, a pipe and pills, the report says.
