A Kansas City, Kan., man whose heavily tattooed face led to his identification and arrest for a carjacking was sentenced Tuesday to 12 years in federal prison.
Nathaniel Germany, 27, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan., where he previously pleaded guilty to carjacking and using a firearm during a crime of violence.
Germany admitted that last September, he robbed a man of his car at gunpoint outside a gas station in the 900 block of North Fifth Street in Kansas City, Kan.
A week later, a gas station employee recognized Germany from the carjacking when he returned to the business. The clerk, who was behind bullet-resistant glass, remotely locked the door with Germany inside and called police.
Germany shot out the glass door to escape.
A few days later, his parole officer identified him from surveillance photos.
