Police link DNA to years old cases

Thanks to DNA evidence Ottawa Police have charged a 45-year-old Ottawa man in a downtown robbery that happened two years ago and a break and enter on Bank Street in 2006.

Mark Howard Pyke was convicted on an unrelated charge last year and the judge ordered he give a DNA sample.

That was linked to evidence collected at the scenes of the robbery and break and enter.

Pyke was arrested Tuesday and appeared in court yesterday on several charges.
