Drug possession, driving under the influence, vandalism and theft are just a few of the crimes celebrities commit to earn them a mugshot that lives on forever on the world wide web. Celebrity mugshots have become a part of pop culture due to the poses or distraught looks they have. But in the 1920s, TMZ didn't exist to expose crimes to the whole world so priceless mugshots of interesting faces were not seen unless the person was Bonnie and Clyde or Al Capone.

Local art student Michael Jason Enriquez has made a blog of celebrity mugshots photoshopped onto mugshots from the 1920s. Here are the photos, along with what he has to say about what the criminals did to earn their close ups.

"Hazel McGuinness was charged along with her mother Ada McGuiness with possession of cocaine (in substantial quantities). Police described a raid on the McGuinnesses' Darlinghurst house during which the mother Ada threw a hand bag containing packets of cocaine to her daughter, shouting, 'Run Hazel!'" --Michael Jason Enriquez

"Mother Ada McGuinness, left, was called the 'most evil woman in Sydney' by a police witness when she appeared in court on charges of cocaine possession. Her daughter Hazel faced court on similar charges. A judge heard how Mrs McGuinness was one of the city's most active cocaine dealers."
