DENVER — A man has been charged in connection with the burglary of a preschool and church last year after DNA from soiled shorts left behind led detectives to the suspect, the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Monday.
Rodney Hendrix, 49, is charged with two counts of burglary, two counts of theft and one count of identity theft in connection to the burglary in August 2014.
The DA’s office alleges Hendrix broke into the unidentified church and preschool and stole guitars and electronics. It also said a pair of shorts with fecal matter were left at the scene, and DNA testing linked the shorts to Hendrix.
Hendrix is in custody on unrelated theft and drug cases. He is due in court Oct. 16.
