DNA on pizza slice ends in one man's arrest

Stuart police were able to 'take a bite out of crime' thanks to one man's taste for pizza.

Last September police say someone broke into a residence on Dyer Drive.

Two iPads, and an Xbox One were stolen.

Detective Richard Serra noticed there was a Mario's Pizza box in the garage and discovered a bite in a slice.

He swabbed the bite mark and sent it to a crime lab for DNA analysis.

The lab matched it to Jamar Mackey of Stuart.

Detective Serra got a search warrant and Mackey was arrested Thursday morning.

He's being held without bail at the Martin County Jail.
