TRUMBULL, Conn. -- The use of DNA helped Monroe police track down a Bridgeport man they said stole one truck and burglarized another in December, according to the Connecticut Post.
Police said Maurice Bacon, 20, was arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal possession of a firearm, identity theft, third-degree larceny, theft of a firearm, and illegal use of a credit card, said the Connecticut Post.
The charges stem from the theft of a 2002 Chevy Silverado pickup Dec. 15, reported the Connecticut Post. On the same night, another vehicle was entered and a purse allegedly was stolen, according to the Connecticut Post. Detectives were able to obtain DNA during the investigation and recently received a hit from the database that allegedly linked Bacon to the crimes, added the Connecticut Post.
