WYOMING — The Cheyenne Police Department has linked Zachary Munoz, 26, of Cheyenne, to at least six recent burglaries.

On September 17, September 24, and October 1, JC Penney at Frontier Mall, 1400 Dell Range Boulevard, was broken into and had jewelry stolen from the store on each occasion.

A coffee cup was left at the scene and sent to the Wyoming State Crime Lab (WSCL) for DNA analysis. After analyzing the evidence, the WSCL recently confirmed there is DNA evidence linking Munoz to the burglaries at JC Penney.

Munoz was arrested and booked on November 21 on warrants for burglary in relation to breaking into 4 Rivers Equipment, 7917 Hutchins Dr., on three separate occasions, stealing power tools and equipment each time. Munoz was linked to those burglaries by a half-eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwich left at the scene, earning him the moniker of the “PB&J Burglar”.

Testing by the WSCL confirmed Munoz’s DNA was on the sandwich. Munoz was also arrested on October 4, after he was observed by Cheyenne Police Department officers behind Sportsman’s Warehouse with burglar tools in his possession.
