ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Prosecutors say duct tape left behind after a restaurant robbery in the Albany area helped police solve the case.

Dumel Tucker was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison for a 2011 robbery in the Albany suburb of Colonie.

Albany County District Attorney David Soares says police were able to recover duct tape used to restrain the restaurant’s employees.

The duct tape was sent to the state police lab. The DNA evidence on the tape was matched to sample in the state database entered in 2013 by Tucker after he was convicted of a robbery in Brooklyn.

Tucker pleaded guilty in December to first-degree robbery in the Albany-area case.
