Ventura man, Andrew David Jensen, was arrested and charged with burglarizing a Southern California home after he took a bathroom break during the crime and left DNA evidence in the toilet. That DNA sample led investigators to his arrest, a report said Tuesday.

Jensen, 42, “did his business and didn’t flush it” during the October break-in in the city of Thousand Oaks, said Detective Tim Lohman of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Lohman said it’s the first DNA burglary match case he knows of with fecal evidence collected from a toilet.

That fecal matter allowed investigators to collect evidence to conduct a DNA profile. It matched another profile in a national database and detectives tracked down the suspect at his home in the nearby city of Ventura.

Jensen was arrested July 28 on suspicion of first-degree residential burglary, a felony. His bail was set at $180,000. Lohman did not know if Jensen has an attorney.

“When people think of DNA evidence, they usually think of hair samples or saliva,” Lohman said.

Jensen was scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday. source
