DNA From Toilet Seat Helps Nab Crook

When you got to go, you got to go. That's what a criminal could be saying right now in jail after he used the bathroom at the scene of a crime. 24-year old Stefan Blakemore broke into Holistic Wellness Academy of Niles back in February of 2012. He stole thousands of dollars worth of items, and poured beverages on the things he touched to try and get rid of his fingerprints. Investigators were able to get DNA evidence from the toilet seat and matched it to Blakemore. He's since been sentenced to 270 days in jail for one count of larceny.
