DNA evidence implicates Jake in break and enter

Thursday, February 21, 2013   by: Staff



City Police arrested 20-year-old Jake Pelletier of 30 Wellington Street East on February 21 for a break and enter which occurred in July 2012.

A home in the 100 block of Albert Street West was broken into by the accused but he was scared off by the homeowner’s son.

The accused cut himself on some glass and left blood at the scene which was collected for DNA evidence.

A positive hit was obtained from the DNA sample which led to Mr. Pelletier’s arrest.

He will be appearing in Provincial Court on March 25.

hopefully other criminals will think twice, and realize it is easier to make money the legitimate way

I'm pretty sure getting DNA testing is a long drawn out and expensive procedure, especially for a lessor serious crime? It's great to see the police pursue this and get the results which ended in an arrest!

Ha! DNA on the broken window, nicely done.

Apparently Ratio Cane of CSI Miami agrees!

PS- I find it amusing that the first posters nickname is Bonnie & Clyde. lol.

I understand your point, however crime is crime. B&E at a young age funds larger crimes. Society should not turn a blind eye, in fact we should be more strick.

Could you imagine finding a stranger in your house at night? How violated you would feel? Your house is your safe haven and sanctuary!

The kid is lucky. You break into my house at any hour, you will be leaving in a body bag. The lives of my family are to valuable to waste the extra time to figure out the intent of a individual at 2:00AM. I'll take my chances in court.

Great Bluff SSMPD, my understanding that DNA testing takes weeks, even months in N.Ont.(but then I could wrong or am I?...Hummm)

You almost have to feel sorry for these people that steal and break and enter...they don't seem to have any smarts.I don't know if they were born that way or went down hill after they fell off the turnip truck. But we all make choices in life.So no I don't feel sorry for these low lifes.The unfortunate thing is there is no real justice. Just a lot of wasted time and taxpayers money spent on our court system. And the sleasy lawyers get to play little games with each other to see who can get the better of the other by getting their useless clients off.

Hey Slim, he was making the comment of "GOOG JOB" not, "don't waste our money on DNA for B&E" and did no one else read the crime was from July? SO that did take months...
cdnprincess 2/22/2013 10:02:07 AM Report

And it's Horatio Cane... this level of commenting has sunk to an all new low...

Court Hearing March 25 "The blood sample on the window was that of the colour of the blood inside Jake Pelletier, there for he must have done it your honour".

Sorry to correct you's actually harder to earn legally ..that's why these scum take or try to take the easy route..!!

It's just too bad after much work and lots of tax dollars they don't make it hard on these human trash and make them pay big time for what they do to others..!

Finally real police work. Not referring two love bird,s fight or rearresting some alcoholic on his 15th breach not to drink.

I don't think crime has a particular schedule. They come in as they come in.
syndi 2/22/2013 5:32:59 PM Report

To the best of my knowledge....when an offender is a repeat or violent offender within the past ten years or so the courts have had it at their disposal to impose a DNA order for the future. So just speculating here as I see that most do....but if it was found to be someones DNA that fast it is due to the fact that it is more than likely already available to them through the national data bank.
