Toilet seat handprint leads police to Fla. suspect

By Washington Post Editors

A man charged with burglary in Florida was caught because he left a palm print on a toilet seat, according to this report:

The missing items from the break-in include a TV, several DVD players, a 12 pack of beer, some DVDs, a GPS and several pieces of electronics equipment taken from a boat, reports the Sheriff's Office.
Detectives say Johnson had entered the home through a bathroom window, and had left a palm print -- on the toilet seat. The print lifted from a toilet seat during their investigation led to his arrest, according to the Sheriff's Office release.
