DNA Pinches Suspected Windsor Thief

DNA testing has led to the arrest of a Windsor man.

Windsor police say a hit from a 2016 break-in at a home on Pillette Rd. just south of Grand Marais Rd. has resulted in charges against a 26-year-old man.

Investigators submitted a DNA sample to the Centre of Forensic Sciences for analysis after a quantity of jewelry was reported stolen and a suspect was positively identified.

He was arrested on Tuesday on Tecumseh Rd. just west of Howard Ave.
