Albuquerque Police caught a suspected armed robber nearly a year after the crime occurred.

The robbery happened in December 2012 at the Walgreens on Central and Rio Grande.

Police say Manuel Leyba left his wallet behind at the scene of the crime.  

Leyba also dropped a bandana that he sneezed into.

It took detectives nearly a year to finally match his DNA and confirm that the identification in the wallet was actually the suspect.

Police say Leyba only stole about $280.
