Wareham Police Use DNA Evidence to Solve Year-Old Case

Wareham Police have used DNA evidence to solve a break into a business one year ago. 

Following a break into the Wareham Country Market on Marion Road in December, 2012, police found blood droppings in areas of the store.  Officers also viewed store surveillance video showing a man taking a hammer to a coin machine. 

The blood samples were sent to the state police crime lab, and a DNA analysis linked those samples to 52 year old Arnold Tavares of Onset. 

Police say he was arrested Tuesday and arraigned in Wareham District Court on charges of breaking and entering, larceny and malicious destruction of property.
