Police in Oklahoma have upped the ante on burglars everywhere by DNA testing the poop of a suspect who broke into a home, January 23, 2013, stole several items and hurriedly used the toilet forgetting to flush.
Picture the homeowner flanked by two cops, staring into the unflushed toilet saying: Well, can’t you DNA test it or something? And the cop says, Are you serious? The guy took a VCR.
It is unknown if cops called in CSI to avoid contaminating the evidence, but somebody collected a DNA sample from a sheet of used toilet paper found on the floor, ran the results through a database and, lo and behold, got a match, according to the probable cause affidavit.
It took a while, but on October 10, 2013, Charles Marqull Williams, 20, became the first petty thief identified by his own poop. He was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary.
There was no comment from Williams, shown here looking miffed, to say the least.
