A Brantford man arrested on Tuesday faces break and enter charges after his DNA was matched to a July break-in.
Police say a man cut open a screen door and broke a glass door to gain entry to a city home at about 10:45 p.m. on July 20.
A necklace and cash were stolen from the home.
The forensic identification unit attended the scene and collected evidence for analysis. That evidence was processed and a suspect was identified through the National DNA Databank.
A 48-year-old Dalhousie Street man is charged with break, enter and theft.
He was held in custody for a bail hearing.
