An Illinois man found guilty of stealing a television remote from an apartment complex common area has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.

Eric Bramwell in August 2015 took the universal remote from a Wheaton apartment building but dropped a glove before he left the complex, the Chicago Tribune reported. A DNA sample taken from the glove matched Bramwell’s DNA logged in the state’s convicted felon database.

The 35-year-old was found guilty of the theft in November and earlier this week was sentenced to 22 years in jail. He must serve at least half of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.
