Utica, NY (WIBX) - Utica Police officials made a break in a dormant burglary case yesterday, thanks to the use of DNA testing. Officials say they arrested Jay Kepner of Sunset Avenue in Utica, for a burglary that occurred on September 29, 2006, at the Tasty Treat in North Utica.

At the time of the crime, police say the suspect suffered a cut and left his blood on the scene. In 2009, an investigator assigned to the case, submitted the blood sample for DNA testing and received a positive match. Officials say they arrested and charged Kepner with Petit Larceny and 3rd Degree Burglary.
