Police say DNA found at the scene helped them solve a burglary from nearly two years ago.

On Tuesday around 8:15 a.m., members of the Kingston Police Department Detective Division arrested 58-year-old George W. Dennis III, of Kingston for burglary.

According to Kingston Police, a Main Street business was burglarized nearly two years ago. During the burglary, a door was damaged and a cash box was stolen.

An initial investigation didn’t yield any suspects. However, evidence at the scene was given to the New York State crime laboratory for examination.

The evidence examined proved that Dennis’s DNA was at the scene, police say. A further investigation alleges Dennis was responsible for the burglary.
