RIDGEPORT, MI (WNEM) – Most forensic labs do not see too many popsicle sticks. But that’s exactly what Michigan State Police said connected 44-year-old Dewayne Haag to a burglary in August of 2011.

State troopers said they found a popsicle stick with Haag’s DNA on it while surveying the scene at the VFW Hall in Pinconning where more than $700 and at least $625 in ice cream treats were stolen.
“It’s really easy to find DNA,” Michigan State Police Forensic Scientist Shane Hill said.  Michigan State Police Laboratory Director Lt. Ryan Larrison said DNA can be found anywhere. “Anything you could imagine, anything that somebody could touch,” he said.
Hill added that certain bodily fluids make connecting people with a crime a little easier. “Seminal fluid, blood, saliva, those are pretty strict to one person,” Hill said.
Larrison said technology to find that DNA continues to improve. “It’s getting better and better all the time,” Larrison said. “I don’t think we’ve really touched the surface yet of what the potential is.”
As for Haag, he told police he never leaves evidence behind. Haag is currently serving time for five counts of breaking and entering and one for safe-breaking.
