Vermont State Police say DNA tests of blood left at the scene of Bristol burglary helped lead them to a suspect.
Police say 39-year-old Andrew Carter of Bristol was charged on Sunday after DNA tests linked him to an April 2009 burglary on the Lower Notch Road in Bristol.
Police say investigators found blood at the scene of the 2009 burglary and submitted it for DNA testing. It came back with a match to Carter who had provided a DNA sample while in jail in New York on other charges.
After that match, Carter was tested again last summer and the samples matched.
Carter is due in court next month to answer the burglary charge.
