GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Talk about police “fingering” a suspect.

Authorities in Glendale, Arizona were able to piece together the story of who tried to make off with some copper wire from the truck of an air conditioning company employee.

The worker says when he saw the wire pulled off the truck, he also found what appeared to be a piece of a cut-off finger in the wiring.

Police retrieved the finger as evidence — and forensics exerts were able to match the prints to 29-year-old Joshua Allen Goverman.

And, wouldn’t you know it, Goverman was missing part of a finger.

He claims, though, he lost part of the digit while working on a car. He’s booked on suspicion of theft.
