Florida: “Police use saliva to arrest Casselberry man on voter-fraud charges”

Orlando Sentinel:

State and local investigators said they used fingerprints and DNA from saliva found on five mail-in ballots to track down a Casselberry man and charge him with voter fraud.

Bret Warren, 36, was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Seminole County Jail on several other charges, including possession of oxycodone.

“It’s really an interesting case in how we were able to find him,” said Evelyn Estevez, a public information officer for the Altamonte Springs Police Department.

In October 2016, days before the general election, several residents of the Spring Valley neighborhood in Altamonte Springs reported to the Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Office that they had not received their absentee ballots.
