ELEVEN months after breaking into a March home whilst the owners were on holiday, a 50 year-old man has been charged after being arrested separately for assault.

Detectives did a DNA check on the man which fitted the match of blood found at a house in Dartford Road, March, which had been burgled last May.

“Nothing was taken as such but it left a real mess at the house,” said Det Insp Dave Murphy.

The man was arrested last month for an alleged assault on his partner and his DNA checked with the police database.

Blood examined at the scene led to the man’s arrest for burglary.

DI Murphy said police were delighted with the “excellent work of scene of crime officers in the last year.”
