A carpenter called to fix a door broken by a burglar was arrested by bungling police – after he left his DNA at the scene as he did his job.
A forensic team found Mr Gaspard’s blood at the house after he cut himself while fixing the door in Hove.
And, because his DNA was presumably on file for another unrelated issue, plod sticks the data in, computer spits out a match, and off they go….
No actual police work involved!
Officers arrested him and threw him in a cell before realising their mistake and letting him go.
And expunging details of his arrest, so he can go to the US on holiday without hassle? Probably not.
Omelettes and eggs, right?
* I know, I know. Rhetorical question – the idiots who champion such a thing are always in favour, no matter what…
