DNA evidence led to Howell’s arrest, authorities said. He is currently in the Marengo County Detention Center.

Back on Jan. 18, someone broke into the Subway on Highway 80 East and stole an undisclosed amount of money.

Reeese commended his department for their sustained investigative work.

“This shows that we don’t just give up cases; sometimes it just takes a while longer to get them resolved,” Reese said.
