Police charged a Coralville man with burglary after his still-burning cigarette was reportedly found outside the victim’s residence.

Darryl Jenkins, 43, Coralville, was charged June 19, 2009, with second-degree burglary.

According to reports, the victim returned home to his Johnson Street residence and walked into his yard.

He then allegedly observed Jenkins busting out his front door to run away. The victim found computers and video games missing from the residence, police said.

Jenkins’ cigarette butt was reportedly found still burning on the ground next to the victim’s house. Police collected the cigarette, and numerous DNA tests allegedly confirmed that it was his.

Second-degree burglary is a Class C felony generally punishable by a mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison and maximum fine of $10,000.
