Guelph police say DNA left behind at the scene of a break-in has led to an arrest more than two years later.
A compound near Dunlop Drive and Watson Parkway was broken into in September 2018.
Police said several items were taken but a screwdriver used to pry open a vending machine was recovered by investigators.
That key piece of evidence was sent to the Centre of Forensic Science for analysis and police said it ultimately led to a man being identified.
On Monday, police announced a 45-year-old man was arrested over the weekend after he was found at a home near Speedvale Avenue and Edinburgh Road.
He was charged with break and enter and breaching his probation. He will make a court appearance in December.
