Fingerprint Found at House Break Leads Police to Suspect

On June 8, 2010, Wrentham Police responded to a house break on
Taunton Street
after the resident reported the back door had been kicked in. Detective Labonte processed the scene and lifted two fingerprints from an iron gate located behind the house.

The lifted prints along with other items were submitted to the State Lab for processing as is the routine for most house breaks. On August 19, 2010, State Police notified Detective Labonte that the two prints lifted from the gate were matched to a suspect identified as Paul Miguel, date of birth 11/23/1970.  Further investigation revealed Mr. Miguel was in jail for other offenses.

 Detective Labonte paid him a visit to conduct an interview. Information and evidence compiled during the investigation proved sufficient to secure a warrant for Mr. Miguel, charging him with Breaking and Entering, Destruction of Property and Larceny Over $250.00.
