Burglar Forgets to Flush Toilet, Leaves DNA Evidence

(Photo: Matthew Jording)

Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico say that they’ve caught the culprit of a $250,000 house burglary in part because he left a DNA sample in a toilet. While robbing the home, the police say that the man drank a Coke from the refrigerator, leaving one DNA sample. Then he used the toilet. Because he didn’t flush, he left another DNA sample for forensic technicians to retrieve.

So the lesson for today is that if you don’t flush, you might go to jail.
