Fingerprints led to Tuesday’s arrest of Rock Hill man connected with a vehicle break-in last spring.
In May, a 25-year-old Rock Hill woman reported that someone entered her locked 2004 Honda Accord and took $10 in change and a car starter valued at $125, according to a Rock Hill Police report.
After processing the vehicle, police matched fingerprints to Quarlmar Walton, 25. The victim advised police she did not know Walton and that he had never been in her car before.
Walton may not have had a permanent address due to family barring him from living with them, police say. He has allegedly stole from them on prior occasions.
