A man accused of stealing some items from a home was charged with burglary based on what he left behind.

Charles Marqull Williams, 20, was charged Wednesday with first-degree burglary in Oklahoma County District Court.

On Jan. 23, 2012, a burglary was reported at 1509 SE 47 Place. The burglar apparently relieved himself in a toilet, leaving behind unflushed feces and a used piece of toilet paper on the floor, according to the probable cause affidavit.

A DNA test on the toilet paper matched Williams, the affidavit states.

Williams was convicted previously of second-degree burglary, concealing stolen property and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, records show.
