Play-Doh Helps Solve a Crime

Source: 24/7 News

(Leicester, MA)  --  A suspected shoplifter is under arrest after Massachusetts police used a fingerprint in Play-Doh to help identify the man.  

Leicester police said a shoplifter covered anti-theft devices at a Walmart with Play-Doh on December 11th.  

The alarms still sounded, and the suspect ran, but employees later found the devices covered in the compound behind the store.  

A piece of Play-Doh contained a fingerprint and police shared a photo of the print on March 29th.  

This week, police said the Connecticut Forensics Laboratory contacted them last month and said the print matched that of 55-year-old Dennis Jackson, who has warrants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  

He was arrested and is being held without bond.
