Police Catch Suspect Through DNA On Doughnut, Police Catch Church Burglarly Suspect Through DNA On A Half-eaten Doughnut

By | February 16, 2009

Police believe a church burglary has been solved through DNA found on a half-eaten doughnut. A 22-year-old man was charged with burglary in the January 2007 break-in at Woodhaven Christian Church. Police said a number of musical instruments were taken, but officers found a box of doughnuts in the church’s kitchen and noticed a bite had been taken from one of the doughnuts.

Deputies sent the half-eaten doughnut to the Indiana State Police lab for testing. Authorities received confirmation in November that DNA left on the treat matched the man, who is serving a prison sentence at the Branchville Correctional Facility for an unrelated home burglary.
