An investigation into a reported burglary almost a year ago resulted in the arrest of a man who was linked to the burglary by DNA evidence.

An investigation into a reported burglary almost a year ago resulted in the arrest of a man who was linked to the burglary by DNA evidence.

During a court hearing Thursday, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said investigators found a glove inside the business at 2405 N. University Drive and a second glove outside and DNA from the gloves matched Daniel Lee, 23, of Pine Bluff.

Additionally, Kizer said Lee reportedly sold copper and aluminum taken from the building to a Pine Bluff wrecking yard.

Police reported that the business was entered by knocking a hole in the building and all the copper from inside and outside the building was taken. The burglary had been reported June 28, 2011.

Kizer said Lee had no prior convictions or pending charges in Jefferson County, but did have a prior conviction for theft of property in Pulaski County.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Lee after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with commercial burglary, criminal mischief and theft of property.

Bridgforth appointed the Public Defenderís Office to represent Lee and told him to come back to court July 26.
