Investigators in Southern California arrested a man for burglary based on the DNA evidence he left behind in the toilet.

The suspect “did his business and didn’t flush it,” said Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Det. Tim Lohman, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities say the break-in happened last October in Thousand Oaks. According to a release from the sheriff’s office, authorities obtained a DNA profile from evidence at the scene and submitted it to the Combined DNA Index System. It had a potential match with a known offender.

The Department of Justice told the sheriff’s office last month the DNA profile matched 42-year-old Andrew David Jensen.

Deputies had him in custody within a matter of days.

Jensen is in jail on a $70,000 bond, according to the sheriff’s office.
