Sheriff Unveils New Device to Collect DNA in Crimes

Oneida County has a new, high-tech crime fighter to increase the conviction rates on the most heinous crimes – and they’re only the second department in the state to have the ‘M-Vac’.

The machine collects DNA in cracks and crevices, or on fabrics, that DNA swabbing and other previous methods can’t.

It will mainly be used to catch sex offenders. The machine cost about $43,000.
