Half-Eaten Sausage Solves 9-Year-Old German Burglary

Written by on March 11, 2021

BERLIN (AP) — German police say they’ve solved a nine-year-old housebreaking after DNA discovered on a half-eaten piece of sausage matched that of a person detained in France over an unrelated crime.

Police within the western city of Schwelm mentioned Thursday that the sausage belonged to the sufferer, and the suspect — a 30-year-old Albanian citizen — appeared to have helped himself to a chunk through the March 2012 break-in.

It wasn’t clear what kind of sausage — identified in Germany as wurst — the burglar had nibbled, although police mentioned it was a tough selection.

Investigators have been lately alerted that French police had taken an identical DNA pattern from a person concerned in a violent crime.

However Schwelm police mentioned the suspect stays free and, within the wurst case, he might escape punishment. The statute of limitations on the housebreaking has expired, which means he’ll probably not be extradited to Germany.
