MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man was booked into jail on Valentine's Day for a pair of crimes committed in September 2016.
Andre Terrell Valentine is behind bars after a 16-month investigation.
Memphis Police Department matched fingerprints found inside a stolen truck to Valentine.
Investigators said Valentine stole $30,000 worth of property (including two vehicles) from a business in South Memphis on September 18, 2016.
Fourteen days later, Valentine tried to break into a Dollar Tree on Lamar Avenue. He dropped a set of keys while trying to get into the store.
Those keys led investigators to a truck that had been stolen in the Sept. 18 burglary.
Inside the truck, investigators found Valentine's fingerprints.
Sixteen months later, Valentine was booked into 201 Poplar.
