Police nab toothless robber

DNA evidence has helped Winnipeg police arrest and charge a woman for a robbery dating back more than six years.

Police say their suspect held up a convenience store in the 800 block of Arlington Street back in October 2007.

She made off with some cash, but during the commission of the crime, her false teeth fell out of her mouth and remained behind for police to take into evidence.

Just recently a match turned up for the genetic material that was on the dentures which led to yesterday’s arrest of an adult female in connection with the crime.

Police say that the woman has been released from custody.
