DNA leads police to 2008 burglary suspect

Posted: Updated:
MESA, Ariz. -

DNA led police to a man they believe broke into a home almost five years ago.

John Wyskochil was arrested Tuesday for allegedly breaking into a home in Jan. 2008.

Police accused Wyskochil of taking a homeowner's car keys and driving off with their car.

Officers collected evidence from the scene, including swabs of blood found inside the home.

Last month, a DNA match was made that linked the blood to Wyskochil.

He was arrested at him home after a brief stand off.

Police said Wyskochil admitted to breaking into the house but said he didn't steal anything.
