Watertown Man Proceeding To Trial For Break-In

5/19/17 – A Watertown man will proceed to trial in connection with a residential break-in. Gavin Moskow waived his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday on one felony count of Burglary of a Building or Dwelling. Last April, Watertown police were dispatched to a reported burglary. Upon arriving at the scene, officers noticed a broken window, a hammer, and a drop of blood. Residents said that they could not find anything that was missing but noted that it would cost roughly $200 dollars to fix the damages. The hammer and blood was collected and DNA tests were done to find possible matches. Prosecutors says the results came back matching the DNA found on the hammer with a burglary case in Washington County which led police to Moskow. The 19-year-old was brought in for questioning and denied that he was involved with the burglary. He also consented to buccal swab test. The results from that test reportedly matched the DNA found at the crime scene. If convicted, Moskow could face up to 12 years in prison. He’ll be arraigned next month.
