Winnipeg police put bite on robbery suspect with false teeth left at crime

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg police have arrested a robbery suspect — six years after someone left false teeth at the scene of the crime.

Police say a woman with a knife held up a Winnipeg convenience store in October 2007 and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officers say she dropped her false teeth as she fled.

The teeth were seized as evidence and DNA testing eventually led them to a suspect.

An unnamed woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with robbery.
