(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.
