    Everytime they post stuff about some one wanted they use the smallest picture they can find and you can’t make it larger ,

      If you right click on the wanted poster above and click open in new window it will open to where you can save it as a much bigger image or you can print it out.

      I hope this helps. Let me know if you need anymore help =)

        On my mobile, it won’t give the option to zoom in on the profile. I definitely don’t want to screenshot, I’m not that invested 😂

      idk if you didn’t open the article, but there are 3 pictures of him, 2 full page ones. VERY easy to see distinguish marks/ tattoos/ etc… if you see this guy, you won’t mistake him for anyone else. Also, if you take a screen shot, you can make the image as large as you like.

    idk if you didn’t open the article, but there are 3 pictures, 2 of them full page. Also, you can screen shot and enlarge them as much as you want. That said, the pics show his tattoos/ piercings/ etc. You cannot mistake someone else for this dude
