Police hope blood evidence will lead them to burglar

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police say thieves who broke into a local children's clinic left behind a key piece of evidence: their blood.

Jason Gardner, owner of Jumping Jelly Beans Pediatric Therapy, 906 E. Matthews, reported the theft Monday morning.

He told Jonesboro police he left the business at 7 p.m. Sunday. When maintenance arrived the following morning, he said the front door glass was broken.

Gardner said the thieves stole an Acer laptop and an HP laptop valued at $350 each.

Other items stolen included a doorknob set, new sink, and shop brooms.

He estimated damage to the front door at $250.

While investigating the scene, Officer Shon Morris reported finding a spot of blood on a light switch and the wall in one of the offices.

Morris then called Detective Rodney Smith to the scene for DNA analysis.

There are no suspects at this time.
