A man suspected of committing burglary over three years ago has been arrested thanks in part to DNA evidence.

On February 26, 2011, Shreveport Police responded to the 500 block of Anderson Avenue after reports of a burglary at a business. Upon arrival at the Tank Head Fight Club, officers spoke with the complainant who said he saw a busted window and blood droppings located throughout the business.

Investigating officers collected blood samples from the crime scene and submitted the evidence to the North Louisiana Crime Lab for processing. Detectives were eventually notified that the DNA evidence collected from the scene matched 26-year old Tyler Stomberg of Minden, Louisiana.

Due to the evidence, police were able to receive(issue) a warrant for the arrest of Stomberg who was currently in prison in another jurisdiction on unrelated charges.

Stomberg has since been arrested on the warrant charging him with one count of unauthorized entry of a business. He is currently being held in the Caddo Correctional Center on a $10,000 bond for his most recent charge.
