DNA from Straw and Fingerprint from Cup lead to Robber’s Arrest

Prosecutors say that Edward Bowen committed three robberies last year. In the second robbery, prosecutors say that Bowen drank a beverage from a straw and cup near the crime scene, and DNA from that straw and fingerprints on that cup linked Bowen to the crime. Bowen’s DNA was in the database from an assault conviction in 1996. Bowen could now face up to 25 years in prison.
