CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. -- A DNA match on fingerprints lifted after a Cliffside Park home burglary led to charges against a 31-year-old repeat offender, Police Chief Richard Gaito told Daily Voice.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification retrieved the print after the Aug. 7 break-in.

Murcia was being held on unrelated charges in the Hudson County Correctional Facility when the match was made in late September, Gaito said.

He was transferred Tuesday to the Bergen County Jail, where he remained held on $30,000 bail, charged with burglary and theft.
