DNA evidence recovered at the scene of a Manoa burglary in 2009 led to the arrest of a suspect yesterday, police said.
Prosecutors charged John Jay McGarry, 41, with first-degree burglary yesterday morning in connection with the Oct. 20, 2009, burglary of a Manoa residence. Bail for McGarry was set at $50,000.
Police said they matched DNA found at the scene to McGarry in October 2010 and arrested him yesterday morning at the Oahu Community Correctional Center.
