Warwick man charged in 2012 Richmond break-in


RICHMOND — Daniel Bowser, 34, of 122 Tennyson Road, Warwick, was arraigned in Washington County Superior Court on a Richmond Police Department felony charge of breaking and entering a dwelling brought by the R.I. Department of Attorney General’s Office in Washington County.

More than two years ago, on Jan. 27, 2012, the Richmond Police Department responded to a break-in on Carolina Nooseneck Road in Richmond. The suspect smashed a rear sliding glass door to gain entry to the home.

While processing the scene, Lt. John Arnold discovered fresh wet blood stains on the frame of the door at the point of entry, and seized blood samples as evidence.

Arnold submitted those samples to the R.I. Department of Health, which subsequently reported that the DNA profile belonged to an unknown male who was not found in the state DNA system or nationwide FBI CODIS database.

In April 2014, the RIDOH notified Arnold that the DNA profile from the break-in was matched to Bowser, who is in the R.I. DNA database.

“As a result of Arnold’s analysis and efforts at the scene, the assistance of the R.I. Department of Health, and Lt. Arnold’s tenacious follow-up investigation, an open investigation into a theft from a resident’s home was solved,” said Police Chief Elwood M. Johnson Jr.
