It’s hard to stay on the run for long when you have very distinguishable face tattoos and are the subject of a Canada-wide warrant. Michael Stamatakos, 31, found that out last weekend when he visited the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton. A nurse recognized him and called the police, who arrived and arrested the wanted man. Police said Stamatakos was cooperative and knew he would be arrested if he went to the hospital.
