    Vermont State Police say blood evidence led them to a man suspected of trying to break into a town highway department building nearly a year and a half ago.

    Back in September of 2014, officials in Fairfax reported that items had been stolen from the town highway department, a locked structure was broken into and damaged and there was an unsuccessful attempt to break into the department's main building. A state trooper noticed fresh blood at the scene, and investigators suspected it came from someone who stole a battery from one of the town trucks.

    Based on DNA testing performed by the Vermont Forensic Laboratory, authorities charged 33-year-old Jan Hood with petit larceny and burglary. A phone number for Hood, who is from Enosburg, could not be found Monday.
