KEY LARGO, Fla., March 8 (UPI) -- Florida authorities said a man accused of burglarizing a home and a boat was arrested thanks to a palm print discovered on a toilet seat.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said an arrest warrant was issued March 4 for Robert Johnson, 46, of Key Largo, after a palm print on a toilet seat at the burglarized home was traced to him, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Investigators said items taken during the Oct. 9 break-in include a TV, multiple DVD players, DVDs, a 12 pack of beer, a GPS device and electronic equipment from the homeowner's boat.

Johnson was found staying in a neighbor's backyard shed and arrested on two burglary counts and two counts of grand theft. He was jailed in lieu of $30,000 bond, the newspaper said.
