A 2013 burglary involving a broken front plate-glass window, stolen cash register and stolen cigarettes resulted in the arrest of a Bronx man this week through DNA evidence, Nassau County police said Friday.

Anthony Cole, 27, of 220 W. 167th St., was arrested Wednesday by the state Division of Parole on an unrelated charge, police said. Police said it was then determined Cole had an open warrant for the burglary at a discount store in Hicksville -- which occurred Nov. 16, 2013.

Cole was linked to the crime through unspecified DNA evidence, police said Friday.

He was scheduled for arraignment Friday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said the burglary at the USA Variety Discount Store on Woodbury Road was discovered by a 70-year-old employee, who arrived at work to find the front plate-glass window shattered and the cash register and "several packs of assorted brand cigarettes" missing. Cole has been charged with third-degree burglary.
