GPD: Break-In Solved Thanks To DNA Evidence

DNA evidence solves a 4-year-old Goldsboro B&E case.  On February 17, 2016, the Goldsboro Police Department took a report on a breaking and entering to a storage shed on the 1300 block of Peele Street.  Someone had broken into the shed and removed property.  Evidence, including DNA, was collected at the crime scene.  On June 25th of this year, the Goldsboro P.D. was notified by the N.C.
