Portland police used DNA analysis to charge a local man in connection with a string of car burglaries in June in the Marginal Way area.

Police charged Scott Hurd, 36, with four counts of burglary to a vehicle, a felony, though he is implicated in many others, police said. Hurd is being held on $15,000 bail at Cumberland County Jail.

Some 30 cars had their windows broken and cash stolen the night of June 9, police said

Thursday afternoon, detectives charged Hurd with two of those burglaries. He already was in jail after being arrested Sept. 20 for allegedly breaking into a car on Boynton Street. The owner found the car window broken and Hurd inside, police said.

Police found him a short distance away.

Police also have charged Hurd with a December 2014 car burglary on Marginal Way.
