Windsor Police used DNA to lay a break and enter charge.

Police say that back on November 16th, 2017 a residence in the 1500 block of Pillette Road was broken into.

Investigation revealed that two suspects had knocked on several doors to the residence. The occupants were home but did not answer the doors. The suspects proceeded to force their way into the residence and began collecting electronics from the home.

When the suspects realized that the residents were indeed home, they fled the scene on foot with a small amount of electronics.

The Windsor Police Service Forensic Identification Unit attended and processed the scene, and a DNA sample was obtained and forwarded to the Centre of Forensic Sciences for analysis.
