DNA evidence has led to an arrest in the case of a stolen vehicle. Newtown Police charged 19-year old Samuel Lopez today on an outstanding warrant. Lopez and an accomplice were tied to the theft of the vehicle from a Swamp Road residence. Shortly after the car was stolen in January 2016, the 2013 Hyundai Elantra was found abandoned in Waterbury. DNA evidence collected from inside the vehicle identified Lopez as the suspect. He was held on a larceny charge for arraignment. He is currently serving a five year sentence for an unrelated robbery.
