BARNES CORNERS, N.Y. -- A burglary case in Lewis County that has been open for two years, is finally closed. State Police said DNA evidence found at the scene of a break-in at the Creekside Market in Barnes Corners produced a match in the state DNA database.
They believe that Robert Austin, 21, cut himself while smashing the glass on the front door of the store in May 2010. Cash, cigarettes, candy, and the cash register were stolen from inside.
Austin was already in jail at the Greene Correctional Facility, convicted of multiple unrelated burglaries. He has been charged with third degree burglary in the case in Lewis County.
