GODFREY, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Authorities in Madison County are searching out anyone who may have bought things from an alleged burglar of storage units, and they're confident the purchasers will remember the seller.

Adam Roberts, 24, is accused of 3 felony counts of burglary related to thefts last month from as many as 28 storage units in his hometown of Godfrey.

What makes Roberts distinctive is the skeleton-style tattoo over his face - artwork sheriff's Capt. Mike Dixon calls "just odd."

Authorities say they've recovered $1,000 worth of stolen property taken in the break-ins, but they suspect Roberts or an accomplice may have sold other items.

Roberts is jailed on $60,000 bond. Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney.
