The person who stole equipment from a Middletown business left behind items that could be used to identify him or her.
A Dell laptop was among the items reported stolen from Barrett Paving sometime overnight April 18, according to a Middletown police report.
“It appears the subject(s) went into the upstairs bathroom and left a Monster energy drink, which was open and still had liquid inside it,” police wrote in the report.
The can was sent off for possible DNA identification.
Also taken from the business at 3751 Commerce Drive was a laptop case, according to the police report.
Police believe the suspected thief or thieves entered the business from a window that was open.
