Reginald St. Fleur: DNA helps Boca Raton police arrest car burglary suspect

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Boca Raton police said blood found on a car helped them arrest a burglary suspect from last spring.

On March 25, officers responded to a report of two car break-ins at Boca Tanning, located at 2521 North Federal Highway.

One of the victims told officers a .32 Beretta pistol, cash, gym clothes, electronics and documents were stolen from a trunk and passenger compartment of his car.

The car was processed and blood, which was later submitted for DNA analysis, was found on the door handle beneath the broken car window.

On Dec. 10,  the Boca Raton detective assigned to the case received the results of the DNA tests, which  connected an employee of Boca Tanning, Reginald St. Fleur, to the case.

Detectives met with St. Fleur, 20, a Boynton Beach resident, and he told them he did not know about the burglary, does not know Fischer and never touched anyone's car.

When investigators explained his blood was found on Fischer's car, St. Fleur again denied any knowledge of the break-in and he did not speak further with detectives.

Detectives later arrested St. Fleur and charged him with armed burglary.
