Burglary suspect regurgitates his way behind bars

ELKMONT, Ala. - Limestone County Sheriff's investigators arrested an Elkmont man after lab results confirmed his identity from tuna and cheese cracker vomit left on the scene of a botched home burglary.

James Marlon White, 35, is charged with Burglary 2nd Degree.

Investigators responded to a burglary on March 16th in the 14000 block of Section Line Road, where the suspect had forced entry through a walk-out basement door and picked up a shotgun he found in the residence. The homeowner confronted the suspect in the hallway, where he dropped the shotgun and ran out of the basement door, vomiting tuna fish and cheese crackers.

The vomit was submitted to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for DNA testing. On Thursday, test results confirmed known burglar James Marlon White to be the suspect in the burglary, says Limestone County Sheriff's officials.

Investigators contacted White and asked him to come to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning, and probable cause was found to arrest him.

He is currently held in the Limestone County Jail on $10,000 bond.
