Police: DNA Match Led To Arrest

KINGSLAND, Ga. – A 17-year-old burglary suspect was arrested Thursday afternoon in connection with two residential burglaries last year, Kingsland police said.

The burglaries took place in September and November, police said. Investigators determined there was forced entry into both homes.

They discovered evidence at both homes and collected it for DNA compassion, police said. They said the DNA matched that of Donberneat Lanier.

Police said Lanier confessed to the burglaries when they interviewed him.

He is charged with two felony counts of burglary and was booked into the Camden County Jail in Woodbine.
