AUGUSTA (AP) — Authorities in Maine say a flip-flop left behind at a doughnut shop burglary in Waterville has led to a conviction.

Jessica Savage was sentenced Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court to serve nine months of a five-year prison term, after pleading guilty to breaking into a Dunkin’ Donuts and stealing $150.

Prosecutors said she smashed a window, hopped over a counter and passed a cash box out the window. But she left behind her footwear and prosecutors say DNA from the flip-flop was matched to the 31-year-old Winslow woman. She was already serving a jail term for participating in a break-in at a state legislator’s home eight days after the doughnut shop burglary.

The Morning Sentinel said Savage was also ordered to pay for the cost of replacing the window.
