He has several tattoos, including Asian symbols of unknown meaning on both hands, and another on his lower left arm that says “RIP TINY JO-JO”, Garrison said.
A black, 1998 Chevrolet Blazer with Indiana license plate XE6590 was stolen Monday from the grounds of Camp Atterbury Monday.
Security cameras recorded the vehicle leaving the area at about 1:30 p.m.
