MANATEE — A 22-year-old Bradenton man was in the Manatee County jail Tuesday after being charged with a burglary from Oct. 11, 2013.
The Bradenton Police Department used a DNA profile found at a crime scene to conclude Dylan Michael Kaltenbaugh committed the crime, according to a police report.
On Oct. 11, three vehicles were broken into at Cordova Villas in the 3700 block of 59th Street Drive West, a report states.
A convertible top was cut open in the burglary, causing $500 damage, and a victim told officers she was missing an M-tec 12-inch knife.
The investigating officers reportedly noticed a pack of Marlboro cigarettes and a piece of paper stained with blood . It took five months, but a Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab report arrived Thursday. It determined blood found on the paper in the vehicle matched Kaltenbaugh’s DNA, the report states.
Kaltenbaugh’s bond was set at $3,000, according to the sheriff’s office website.
