DNA leads to burglary charges

DNA has led to charges being filed in Anoka County District Court against a Coon Rapids man for a burglary at a campground in East Bethel.

Shane Clint Rundle, 22, 9787 Palm St. N.W., is due back in court Feb. 11 on felony second- and third-degree burglary charges.

At his arraignment Jan. 11, bail was set at $5,000 with no conditions or $2,500 with conditions.

In June 2012, the owners of a seasonal camper at Nordquist Camp in East Bethel reported a rear window on the camper had been broken and two television sets and a bedspread had been taken.

The next day, the owners reported that they noticed blood on the camper floor and investigators sent a sample to the Minnesota  Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) for analysis, according to the complaint.

The complaint alleges that the BCA found DNA in the blood sample that matched the DNA profile of Rundle, a convicted offender.

And when a DNA sample of Rundle was sent to the BCA, the DNA match was allegedly confirmed.
