GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Fla. -- Deputies in Collier County say DNA evidence led them to the suspect accused of stealing from a construction site.

Back in August, workers arrived at a home under construction on 34th Avenue Southeast and found the front window smashed and a generator missing.

35-year-old Hanoi Olivera was arrested Wednesday after detectives matched his blood left at the scene.

They say he pawned the stolen generator.

He is charged with burglary, grand theft, dealing in stolen property and defrauding a pawnbroker.
