SOUTH GULF COVE, Fla. - A North Port man is charged with two burglaries in the South Gulf Cove area of Charlotte County.

Investigators say Nikolay Vladimirovic Ivanenko, 31, was linked to the crimes by DNA evidence.  Ivanenko removed hurricane shutters from the homes while the owners were out of town. The crimes happened between late July and early September 2013.

During the investigation into these cases, crime scene personnel located blood at one of the houses on broken glass at the point of an attempted entry.  The blood sample was analyzed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Lab, resulting in a DNA profile that was linked back to Ivanenko.

Ivanenko was charged on Monday with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling.
