GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Police are crediting the State Crime Lab with helping solve two separate cases recently.

In one case, a Green Bay man is behind bars, suspected in a string of burglaries to businesses, churches and homes.

Police say they began receiving reports in October, which continued through the middle of November. Last month, officers were able to find a fingerprint at one of the crime scenes. They tied the fingerprint to Charles Moffett, 46. Moffett had been jailed in a previous burglary case earlier this year, but was released on bond in May.

Police say they suspect Moffett is responsible for eight recent burglaries. He has not yet been formally charged in those cases, however.

In the second case, police had been investigating the Oct. 14 assault of a bartender in downtown Green Bay. As the bartender was locking the doors to Jekyll and Hyde Bar, 226 S. Broadway, someone assaulted her.

Police say they used surveillance video to identify a vehicle involved in the attack. That led to the arrest of Anthony D. Oliver, 53, of Green Bay. Investigators say forensic evidence also linked Oliver to the crime.

Oliver was jailed on a probation hold and has not been formally charged in this case.

Police say anyone who has information about either case can contact them at (920) 448-3208. Anonymous tips may also be left with Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers by phone at (920) 432-7867, online or through the P3 smartphone app.
